Abstract

In the years 1982–1984 we have designed and built a software system for the quantitative processing, analysis and display of magnetic resonance 2D and 3D images and timeseries of images. This system supports two research projects in our university, “NMR in Oncology”, and “MRI Processing and Simulation Studies”.

Keywords

Bloch Equation Body Contour Inversion Recovery Image Adaptive Histogram Equalization Linkage Threshold 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
