T2 mapping of the distal sciatic nerve in healthy subjects and patients suffering from lumbar disc herniation with nerve compression

Magnetic resonance neurography (MRN) of the peripheral nervous system (PNS), the application of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for the depiction and study of peripheral nerves of the human body, is increasingly applied in vivo. Advances in …

Impact of ascending aorta replacement by graft on elastic properties of descending thoracic aorta evaluated by cardiac magnetic resonance imaging

Expanded polyethylene terephthalate (Dacron) has been used in cardiac surgery for 5 decades and is the most commonly used vascular substitute. However, Dacron’s elastic properties are not equivalent to those of the natural aorta. Indeed, Tai et …

Low-level fat fraction quantification at 3 T: comparative study of different tools for water–fat reconstruction and MR spectroscopy

Fat and water signals can be separated with various magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methods [ 1 – 18 ]. Generally, water and fat separation utilizes two physical effects: differences in relaxation [ 19 ] and differences in chemical shift [ 20 ].

Sensitivity and uniformity improvement of phased array MR images using inductive coupling and RF detuning circuits

High-field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems (> 3 T) are widely used in research, because the intrinsic signal-to-noise ratio (ISNR) in MRI is proportional to the square of static field magnitude [ 1 ]. However, high-field MRI also suffers …

Accelerated quantification of tissue sodium concentration in skeletal muscle tissue: quantitative capability of dictionary learning compressed sensing

The muscular sodium concentration has been investigated in several studies [ 1 – 6 ]. In myopathies and muscular channelopathies, an elevated tissue sodium concentration (TSC) seems to play an important role in disease progression [ 6 – 8 ]. In …

Über diese Zeitschrift

Magnetic Resonance Materials in Physics, Biology and Medicine (MAGMA) is a multidisciplinary international journal that publishes articles on all aspects of magnetic resonance techniques and their applications in medicine and biology. MAGMA currently presents research papers, reviews, letters to the editor, and commentaries, six times a year.

The subject areas covered by MAGMA include advances in materials, hardware and software in magnetic resonance technology; new developments and results in research and practical applications of magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy related to biology and medicine; study of animal models and intact cells and reports of clinical trials on humans and clinical validation of magnetic resonance protocols.

A particular feature of MAGMA is its special issues. These normally appear once a year, and are devoted to a current hot topic in MRI, with guest editors selected from those active in the chosen field of research.
