susceptibility mapping is an important magnetic resonance imaging tool which
can help define brain structure and composition. Our work aims to explore
information contained in the temporal trend by analysing the mapped magnetic
susceptibility as a function of echo time from gradient recalled data acquired
at 7T. Temporal susceptibility plots were studied in ten brain regions.
Parameterisation of image voxel susceptibility compartments has the potential
to delineate structural and chemical changes in tissue and formulate
biologically meaningful measures. This in turn provides a framework for new imaging
biomarker developments in neurodegenerative diseases and disorders affecting
the central nervous system.
