There is a need to obtain quantitative measures of tissue susceptibility in the form of susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI). In this study, we used a deep neural network to generate QSM maps from SWI high pass (HP)–filtered phase images. Using the QSM maps reconstructed from mGRE data by iLSQR (mGRE iLSQR) as the ground truth, the QSM maps generated from SWI HP-filtered phase images by UNet (SWI UNet) resulted in lower residuals and a better performance in quantitative metrics compared with the QSM maps reconstructed from SWI HP-filtered phase images by iLSQR (SWI iLSQR).
