A method of magnetic resonance image acquisition and reconstruction is described in which high imaging rates and fast reconstruction times are allowed. The acquisition is a modification of the basic FLASH sequence but with a restricted number N of phase encodings. The encodings are applied sequentially, periodically, and continuously. Images are formed by(More)
We describe an experimental system for performing high-speed reconstruction of MR image data acquired with a GRASS sequence. System characteristics are an image acquisition time of 627 ms, continuous image reconstruction at a rate of 6 images/s, and an image reconstruction time of 120 ms. The results is a system for performing MR imaging in real time.
We describe a system for performing interactive MRI in real time. Using a TR/TE 7.1/3.5 ms sequence, the operator may alter a scan parameter and observe the effects of the alteration on the image within a few hundred milliseconds. With this system, we can interactively control the oblique scan slice orientation and, using inversion pulses, the image(More)
Real-time interactive color flow magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is a combination of real-time MR imaging and color encoding of velocity-induced phase angle. Flow-compensated (FC) and flow-encoded (FE) images are acquired continuously by using gradient echoes and a 12-msec repetition time. Each image is reconstructed within 200 msec of acquisition, and the(More)
Various compensation methods for different types of motion during MR image acquisition have been proposed. Presented here is a postprocessing scheme for eliminating artifacts due to linear, intra-slice motion of known velocity. The data for each phase encoding or "view" acquired from a moving object are shown to differ from those which would be measured(More)
Magnetic resonance (MR) fluoroscopy is a method for high-speed MR image acquisition with the goals of short acquisition time per image (500 msec or less), high image rate (10 images or more per second), and high-speed image reconstruction (150 msec or less from data acquisition to image display). The authors present their results with the first two goals in(More)
The combination of Semantic Web and Grid technologies and archi-tectures eases the development of applications that share heterogeneous resources (data and computing elements) that belong to several organisations. The Aerospace domain has an extensive and heterogeneous network of facilities and institutions, with a strong need to share both data and(More)
In many object recognition problems, the object to be identiied is one of a xed set (library) of objects. The problem of identifying which object is present then shares characteristics of the signal detection and parameter estimation problem: which signal is present and what are its parameters? The Reciprocal Basis Set/Direction of Arrival (RBS/DOA)(More)
We describe a system which forms MR angiographic images at high speed. Multiple axial sections are imaged sequentially using a 2DFT GRASS sequence with TR/TE 50/15 ms, 64 phase encodings per image. Reconstruction and projection of each image are performed immediately (within 220 ms) after data for that image are acquired. The projection angiogram is(More)
