We showed the alternative approach to quantifying magnetic moment, susceptibility and cross-sectional area of veins in human without any a priori information. By summing up MR signals surrounding the object, the magnetic moment, susceptibility and the cross-sectional area of the object can be solved. Here, we tackled three practical issues-low signal to noise ratio inside the object, local background field and the cylindrical object at the low orientation to the main field. The results of the susceptibility in veins agree with the recent published papers.
