The use of multi-echo gradient echo (mGRE) with signal compartment modelling is an increasingly popular choice for myelin assessment by measuring myelin T2* (T2*My), myelin water fraction (MWF) and g-ratio. In this simulation study, we show the effects of varying white matter microstructure and noise levels on GRE and the efficiency of commonly used fitting algorithms for predicting the true T2*My, MWF and g-ratio.
