Recently, myelin water fraction has been investigated using mGRE data. The purpose of this study is to investigate effects of the range of TE in GRE based MWF using different three fitting models. The results of simulation and in-vivo data suggest that complex model can be helpful to overcome bias due to susceptibility anisotropy compared to magnitude based models.
