    A novel magnetic resonance imaging system is explored which uses data collected in the presence of quadrature phase sinusoidal gradients along an excited plane. It is shown that the resulting magnetization signal (FID) is a sum of the Hankel transforms of the radial modulators of the imaged plane. An efficient processing system is suggested which extracts the different Hankel transforms from the r... View full abstract»

    A cylindrical sector image grid with equal area pixels for representing tomographic images is described which offers computational advantages for some algebraic and stochastic reconstruction strategies. An evaluation of techniques for resampling from the cylindrical representation to the standard square pixel representation is included. The resampling techniques of nearest-neighbors, bilinear, cub... View full abstract»

    The modeling of data is an alternative to conventional use of the fast Fourier transform (FFT) algorithm in the reconstruction of magnetic resonance (MR) images. The application of the FFT leads to artifacts and resolution loss in the image associated with the effective window on the experimentally-truncated phase encoded MR data. The transient error modeling method treats the MR data as a subset ... View full abstract»

    This paper describes several methods for magnetic resonance angiography that create projection images based solely on flowing blood. To both remove static tissue from the image and generate signals from blood, two classes of methods considered are temporal subtraction and cancelling excitation. Temporal subtraction, analogous to digital subtraction angiography with live and mask images, is perform... View full abstract»

  • Fractional Brownian Motion: A Maximum Likelihood Estimator and Its Application to Image Texture

    Fractals have been shown to be useful in characterizing texture in a variety of contexts. Use of this methodology normally involves measurement of a parameter H, which is directly related to fractal dimension. In this work the basic theory of fractional Brownian motion is extended to the discrete case. It is shown that the power spectral density of such a discrete process is only approximately pro...

  • Reconstruction from NMR Data Acquired with Imaging Gradients Having Arbitrary Time Dependence

    An algebraic reconstruction method for NMR imaging from data acquired with imaging gradients having essentially arbitrary time dependence is presented. With reasonable discretization, an overdetermined linear system is obtained for which there exist simple factorized 1-inverses of the coefficient matrices; a computationally efficient reconstruction scheme then follows. Some numerical simulations a... View full abstract»

Aims & Scope

IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging (T-MI) encourages the submission of manuscripts on imaging of body structure, morphology and function, including cell and molecular imaging and all forms of microscopy. The journal publishes original contributions on medical imaging achieved by modalities including ultrasound, x-rays, magnetic resonance, radionuclides, microwaves, and optical methods. Contributions describing novel acquisition techniques, medical image processing and analysis, visualization and performance, pattern recognition, machine learning, and related methods are encouraged. Studies involving highly technical perspectives are most welcome.

The focus of the journal is on unifying the sciences of medicine, biology, and imaging. It emphasizes the common ground where instrumentation, hardware, software, mathematics, physics, biology, and medicine interact through new analysis methods. Strong application papers that describe novel methods are particularly encouraged. Papers describing important applications based on medically adopted and/or established methods without significant innovation in methodology will be directed to other journals.

To qualify for publication, submitted manuscripts must be previously unpublished and must not be under consideration elsewhere. The Editor-in-Chief and an Associate Editor will perform a quick review of each manuscript to evaluate the manuscript in terms of novelty, quality and appropriateness and may return the manuscript immediately if it does not meet minimum standards of quality, originality, and scope. Manuscripts will ONLY be accepted in electronic format through ScholarOne Manuscripts. Please go to the ScholarOne Manuscripts website at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/tmi-ieee or to the TMI website http://www.ieee-tmi.org/ to find instructions to electronically submit your manuscript. Do not send original submissions or revisions directly to the Editor-in-Chief or Associate Editors.
