In this study we tested the feasibility of applying quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) to quantify vascular calcification in patients with peripheral vascular diseases. The preliminary result has demonstrated the capability of using QSM for in-vivo measurements of the diamagnetic susceptibility associated with vascular calcifications.
