Brain tissue can be identified and studied with Magnetic Resonance Imaging. Instead of relying only on the image, more advanced methods obtain quantitative measurements that describe specific tissues. Differential equations govern the shape of the magnetization curve, and the six unknown parameters of these equations are fit to the curves obtained from real data. The six parameter fit is performed numerically using a stochastic contraction algorithm. The stability of the results depend on the size of the original search space as well as additional factors. Numerical simulations were performed using this method and the results are concurrent with other literature results.
