The exact symbolic solution of the Bloch equations is given in the Lagrange form and illustrated with R(2) experiments using a Hahn echo. Two different methods are also applied to approximately solve the Bloch equations, we find that splittings with effective-field interpretations are very substantially better than other approximations by comparing the errors. Estimates of transverse relaxation, R(2), from Hahn echos are effected by frequency offset and field inhomogeneity. We use exact solutions of the Bloch equations and simulations to quantify both effects, and find that even in the presence of expected B(0) inhomogeneity, off-resonance effects can be removed from R(2) measurements, when parallelomega parallel0.5gammaB(1), by fitting the exact solutions of the Bloch equations. Further, the experiments and simulations show that the fitting models with the exact solutions of the Bloch equations do not depend on the sampling density and delay times.

This work investigates the use of MRI radio-frequency (RF) pulses designed within the framework of optimal control theory for image contrast optimization. The magnetization evolution is modeled with B...
This paper presents a discrete-time recurrent neural network approach to solving systems of linear equations with two features. First, the system of linear equations may not have a unique solution. Se...
We present a numerical method for rapidly solving the Bloch equation for an arbitrary time-varying spin-1/2 Hamiltonian. The method relies on fast, vectorized computations such as summation and quater...
