System And Method For Determining Patient Parameters Using Radio Frequency Phase Increments In Magnetic Resonance Imaging
WARF: P190216US01

Inventors: Scott Reeder, Xiaoke Wang

The Invention
A system and method are provided for controlling a magnetic resonance imaging system to perform a gradient echo pulse sequence that includes varying a phase of an RF pulse of the gradient echo pulse sequence between repetitions and acquire complex MR data. The method includes processing the complex MR data to determine signal contributions from transverse relaxation (T2) in the subject, generating a quantitative T2 map of the subject using the signal contributions from T2 in the subject, and displaying the quantitative T2 map.
