Purpose: To develop a motion estimation and correction method for motion-robust three-dimensional (3D) quantitative imaging with 3D-echo-planar time-resolved imaging. Theory and methods: The 3D-echo-planar time-resolved imaging technique was designed with additional four-dimensional navigator acquisition (x-y-z-echoes) to achieve fast and motion...

Purpose: To develop an efficient acquisition technique for distortion-free diffusion MRI and diffusion-relaxometry. Methods: A new accelerated echo-train shifted echo-planar time-resolved imaging (ACE-EPTI) technique is developed to achieve high-SNR, distortion-free diffusion, and diffusion-relaxometry imaging. ACE-EPTI uses a newly designed var...
Article
Multi-parametric quantitative MRI has shown great potential to improve the sensitivity and specificity of clinical diagnosis and to enhance our understanding of complex brain processes, but suffers from long scan time especially at high spatial resolution. To address this long-standing challenge, we introduce a novel approach, termed 3D Echo Planar...

Strong gradient systems can improve the signal-to-noise ratio of diffusion MRI measurements and enable a wider range of acquisition parameters that are beneficial for microstructural imaging. We present a comprehensive diffusion MRI dataset of 26 healthy participants acquired on the MGH-USC 3 T Connectome scanner equipped with 300 mT/m maximum grad...

Spin-echo (SE) BOLD fMRI has high microvascular specificity, and thus provides a more reliable means to localize neural activity compared to conventional gradient-echo BOLD fMRI. However, the most common SE BOLD acquisition method, SE-EPI, is known to suffer from T2′ contrast contamination with undesirable draining vein bias. To address this, in th...

The first phase of the Human Connectome Project pioneered advances in MRI technology for mapping the macroscopic structural connections of the living human brain through the engineering of a whole-body human MRI scanner equipped with maximum gradient strength of 300 mT/m, the highest ever achieved for human imaging. While this instrument has made i...
Thesis
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a widely used non-invasive imaging technology for both clinical diagnosis and neuroscientific research. However, the imaging sensitivity and specificity of brain MRI are limited by the well-known technical challenge of MRI acquisition—low image encoding efficiency, leading to limited acquisition speed, spatial re...

Spin-echo (SE) BOLD fMRI has high microvascular specificity, but its most common acquisition method, SE-EPI, suffers from T2' contrast contamination with undesirable draining vein bias. To address this, in this study, we extended a recently developed multi-shot EPI technique, Echo-Planar Time-resolved Imaging (EPTI), to laminar SE-fMRI at 7T to obt...

Purpose We combine SNR‐efficient acquisition and model‐based reconstruction strategies with newly available hardware instrumentation to achieve distortion‐free in vivo diffusion MRI of the brain at submillimeter‐isotropic resolution with high fidelity and sensitivity on a clinical 3T scanner.

High-resolution diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is beneficial for probing tissue microstructure in fine neuroanatomical structures, but long scan times and limited signal-to-noise ratio pose significant barriers to acquiring DTI at sub-millimeter resolution. To address this challenge, we propose a deep learning-based super-resolution method entitled...

Myelin water imaging techniques based on multi-compartment relaxometry have been developed as an important tool to measure myelin concentration in vivo, but are limited by the long scan time of multi-contrast multi-echo acquisition. In this work, a fast imaging technique, termed variable flip angle Echo Planar Time-Resolved Imaging (vFA-EPTI), is d...

The interaction of the midbrain dopaminergic system and the striatum is implicated in reward processing; it is still unknown, however, how this interaction is altered in Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). In the current study, we related the dopamine release/binding inferred by [11C] Raclopride functional Positron Emission Tomography (fPET) to neural...

Purpose: Spin-echo functional MRI (SE-fMRI) has the potential to improve spatial specificity when compared with gradient-echo fMRI. However, high spatiotemporal resolution SE-fMRI with large slice-coverage is challenging as SE-fMRI requires a long echo time to generate blood oxygenation level-dependent (BOLD) contrast, leading to long repetition t...
