Quantitative magnetization transfer (qMT) imaging can be used to quantify the proportion of protons in a voxel attached to macromolecules. Here, we show that the original qMT balanced steady‐state free precession (bSSFP) model is biased due to over‐simplistic assumptions made in its derivation.
Theory and Methods
We present an improved model for qMT bSSFP, which incorporates finite radiofrequency...
