  • What MRI scanners has Decay Variance been tested with?
    Decay variance has been tested on a range of field strengths from 3T to 7T. Current validation research includes 1.5T scanners but these results are not yet available. So far Decay Variance has been used with Siemens, Philips and Bruker scanners. Generally any scanner able to perform a CPMG type multi-echo sequence and able to output data in a standard format (such as DICOM) should be adequate.
