Computer simulation of tagged magnetic resonance (MR) images is presented using signals derived from connected solid triangular or tetrahedral elements. Simulation provides precisely-known deformations for validating tag quantification algorithms. MR imaging signal is derived by Fourier-transforming over a standard element, then mapping to actual elements via transformations. Linear intensity variations over the element are interpolated from vertex intensities determined by tag calculations.
