Myelin-water quantification relies on modeling of multi-exponential T2-relaxation time decay. For this, we explore the greedy Orthogonal Matching Pursuit (OMP) method and compare it to the most commonly applied non-negative least squares (NNLS) method. The two methods are evaluated by means of simulations, phantom measurements and in vivo image data.
