Paper Published: . Impact of T2 decay on carotid artery wall thickness measurements

Another paper from our collaborators at Johns Hopkins, this one looking at the choice of MRI acquisition parameters can affect artery wall thickness and tissue characterization.  With the help of BSL Master's student Alex Martinez, we used an analytic MRI simulation approach, which Luca Antiga and I had previously used to characterize wall thickness artifacts due to slice resolution and orientation, to confirm that decreased wall thickness measurements with increased echo time is the result of adventitial signal decay.
