Table 5 Intraclass correlation (class 1) results of BPF and segmented tissue volumes.

From: Parallel imaging: is GRAPPA a useful acquisition tool for MR imaging intended for volumetric brain analysis?

  1. The brain volumes were measured using patient images acquired on two separate occasions with the same acceleration factor. Data of 15 patient images are included in the acceleration factor two comparison and of 13 patients in the acceleration factor four comparison. Volumes were measured using the BET-Sienax algorithms of FSL (ICC(Sienax)) and BMAP-Volstat program (ICC(Volstat)). Volumes are measured in cm3 with the exception of BPF, which is unitless.
