Quantification of changes in the macromolecular constituents of tissue is a major theme in biomedical magnetic resonance (MR). In many cases, constituents can only be distinguished through their differing water transverse relaxation times, instead of by frequency differences as is more familiar in MR spectroscopy. However, this requires implementation of multiexponential transverse relaxation analysis (METRA), a special case of the inverse Laplace transform, a notoriously ill-posed and unstable inverse problem.
