Profile
Summary
In past years working on the image physics aspects of fMRI, I found that the images acquired by MRI technology cannot faithfully represent the intact magnetic source due to the data alteration imposed by MRI transformations. In philosophy, the intrinsic magnetic source expression of a brain state (static structural or dynamic functional) has nothing to do with the MRI technology indeed. The MRI technology just serves as an expedient for us to obtain an image, which is related to the magnetic source of object interior but definitely not an identical reproduction of the intact source. By solving an inverse imaging problem of fMRI, which serves to remove the MRI transformations and MRI parameter dependence, we can reconstruct the intact magnetic source that offers intrinsic structural depiction and functional mapping. A ZINV LLC has established to devote to inverse MRI solutions.
