  • NOISE-REDUCTION IN MAGNETIC-RESONANCE IMAGING MAGNETIC RESONANCE IN MEDICINE Brosnan, T., Wright, G., Nishimura, D., Cao, Q. H., Macovski, A., Sommer, F. G. 1988; 8 (4): 394-409


    This paper describes a noise-reduction technique applicable to multiple-measurement systems. This method, known as measurement-dependent filtering (or MDF), can be used to advantage in a number of MRI applications. We present the general theory for one of these applications, material-canceled projection imaging. We discuss and show the results of MDF for material-canceled images as well as for heavily T2-weighted spin-echo images and computed T2 images. Significant improvements in SNR are demonstrated while spatial resolution is preserved.
