An adaptive Bayesian MRF approach for DCE-MR imaging

We use a hierarchical Bayesian approach to estimate PK parameters for DCE-MRI data. Spatial information is incorporated in a versatile model-building framework by an adaptive GMRF prior. The new approach reduces estimation error and smoothes the PK parameters in homogenous regions, but retains sharp features.
