Module Description

This module implements a local intensity correction for inhomogeneities due to coil placement in cardiac LGE-MRI images. It fits a gradient function to the image data and normalizes accordingly. Note that this is not a whole image correction and it is specific to LGE MRI cardiac images. The input to this module is a segmented region on which to base the intensity gradient model and a segmentation of the region of interest to apply the correction. There are no parameters.

Use Cases

This module is meant to be used for MRI scans where local inhomogeneity has been detected.
