(GE/HSI Study) Diffusion Weighted Imaging for Skeletal Muscle: Acquisition Efficiency, Deep Learning Reconstruction, and Post-processing Improvements

The PI of this project is:

This project is funded by: MR 750W Lease Account

The term of this project is: December 2021 to December 2099

The number of subjects scanned during this project is: 43

The primary objective of this study is to improve the efficiency of diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) acquisition and post-processing. With improved acquisition and processing methods, clinical applications of DWI as a quantitative assessment of muscle microstructure may be feasible. Each of the aims will first be implemented on healthy athletes and then applied to injured athletes with an acute hamstring strain injury.
