abstract

  • An attempt is made to quantify rapid flow using magnetic resonance imaging techniques. An analysis is presented in which it is assumed that constant velocity gradients are present. A deconvolution scheme which can remove the blurring from motion with acceleration is developed. This allows improved resolution and velocity determination. Computer experiments were performed on simulated data, where the velocity drops from 100 cm/s to 50 cm/s over a distance of 5 cm. In noise-free data, velocities were recovered to within 2% of the lower velocity and, for data with 5% white noise, to within 6%
