In this study, we demonstrated the feasibility of a
novel retrospective T2-W 4D-MRI phase and amplitude
hybrid sorting method based on HASTE/SSFSE sequence. A
result-driven sorting strategy was induced in this
technique. The T2-W 4D-MRI technique can be applied on
liver, pancreas and many other abdominal regions to
exhibit the motion of tumors or critical organs. To
validate our technique, 4D-MRI acquisition and
reconstruction were tested on a 4D Digital Extended
Cardiac-Torso (XCAT) human phantom. 5 healthy volunteers
were involved in a human study for this technique.
Future evaluation on patients is desired.
