STI is sensitive to tissue
microstructure and can detect subtle changes in disease states. However, STI
remains a challenging protocol due to the physical reorientation with respect
to the magnetic field. Current studies of the heart and kidney are limited to ex-vivo imaging. In this study, we
present frequency tensor imaging (FTI) at a single image acquisition without
rotating the object. FTI takes advantage of tissue structure already pointing
in multiple directions with respect to the magnetic field in a single
orientation dataset. This technique offers the potential for susceptibility-based
tensor imaging of the abdomen in the clinic.
