Title: MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING APPARATUS AND CONTROL METHOD THEREFOR
Abstract:
Provided are a magnetic resonance imaging apparatus for correcting, on the basis of a reference boundary tracked with respect to a chest wall area of a reference cross-sectional image, a boundary of a chest wall area of at least one of remaining cross-sectional images, and a control method therefor. A magnetic resonance imaging apparatus according to one embodiment comprises: a display for displaying at least one of a plurality of cross-sectional images of an object obtained on the basis of a magnetic resonance signal; and an image processing unit for determining a chest wall area according to a brightness value in each of the plurality of cross-sectional images and tracking a boundary of the chest wall area from a feature point of the determined chest wall area, wherein the image processing unit may correct, on the basis of a tracked reference boundary of a reference cross-sectional image among the plurality of cross-sectional images, the tracked boundary of at least one of remaining cross-sectional images.
