Paper Abstract

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is widely used in medicine nowadays, yet a significant disadvantage is the amount of artifacts that affect the image during the acquisition process. This paper presents a strategy for automatic damage detection when the image is altered by movement or there is a loss of information due to magnetic susceptibility. This approach uses a conventional SV D to detect the variability between slices of the image and a region of damaged voxels within the volume. Using a simple derivative algorithm, the method was tested in several cases automatically revealing the distortion's location with a performance of 74% for slice damage and 55% for the volume's damaged region.
