The null hypothesis method is then compared to current practices in in vivo myelin water signal detection including the commonly used regularized NNLS algorithm.
A robust and reliable method for detecting signals of interest in multiexponential decays
For SNR of 1000, the worst problem found was that NNLS would reconstruct a low shoulder of the main water peak into a separate myelin peak.
A robust and reliable method for detecting signals of interest in multiexponential decays
The first step was the generation of simulated T2 decays, for use as original spectra, to aid in the assessment of the various detection methods of the myelin signal.
A robust and reliable method for detecting signals of interest in multiexponential decays
The second step demonstrated common practices in multiexponential reconstruction currently used in the detection of the myelin signal so they could be compared with testing the null hypothesis.
A robust and reliable method for detecting signals of interest in multiexponential decays
In the original spectrum, the myelin and main water peaks were located at 20ms and 80ms respectively with the main peak having 9 times the amplitude of the myelin peak.
