Comparison of ALADDIN MTA to conventional MTA method.
a: Baseline and MTA images acquired using conventional MTA method with MT effects equivalent to ALADDIN first prior slice (± 3200 Hz), second prior slice (± 6400 Hz), and third prior slice (± 9600 Hz) and those acquired using ALADDIN from a representative subject. The MTA images are displayed in percent signal change (PSC). b and c: SNR (b) and PSC (c) of ALADDIN and conventional MTA images measured in WM (N = 6). bSSFP readout with flip angle of 60° was used for imaging in all methods.
