The use of reticulated foam in texture test objects for magnetic resonance imaging

R. Lerski and L. Schad

Magn Reson Imaging, 16 (9), pp.1139-1144

The use of texture analysis in magnetic resonance imaging requires the availability of texture test objects for use in standardisation of in vivo measurement. A series of such objects of varying texture has been developed using reticulated foam, which has an open pore structure. The texture properties of these foams have been compared with in vivo brain and the ability of texture analysis to discriminate the different porosities of foam and brain (white matter) demonstrated.
