A method for Bloch image simulation of living tissues was developed and the simulated results were compared with experiments performed for phantoms including T2* distribution and various chemical components. The Bloch image simulation for living tissues is based on a four-dimensional numerical phantom consisting of spatially defined 3D datasets of proton density, T1, and T2 with spatially homogeneous B0 (frequency) offset. The multiple gradient-echo images reconstructed from the MR signal obtained from the Bloch image simulation of the numerical phantom reproduced experimental results for samples that simulated living tissues.
