3D FRONSAC with PSF reconstruction

  title={3D FRONSAC with PSF reconstruction},
  author={Yanitza Nicole Fl{\'o}rez Rodr{\'i}guez and Nahla M. H. Elsaid and Boris Keil and Gigi Galiana},
Many strategies to improve parallel imaging can be categorized as either (1) more advantageous paths through k-space [1], [2], (2) better reconstruction [3], [4], [5], [6], or (3) improved receiver hardware [7], [8], [9], [10]. An emerging strategy is to apply nonlinear gradients [12], [20], especially with highly dynamic waveforms [14], [15], [16]. In particular, the FRONSAC trajectory, which applies a modest amplitude but rapidly oscillating waveform on several nonlinear gradient channels…

Parallel imaging technique using localized gradients (PatLoc) reconstruction using orthogonal mode decomposition

The reconstructed PatLoc image shows reduced sensitivity at the center of FOV as the result of lacking encoding information from both the gradient system and the RF sensitivity, and it is hypothesize that other linear combinations of gradients can improve the quality of image reconstruction.

Clinical Potential of a New Approach to MRI Acceleration

This work introduces the insight that Cartesian-FRONSAC retains many desirable features of Cartesian imaging, and improves accelerated imaging while retaining the robustness and flexibility critical to real clinical use.

Generalized autocalibrating partially parallel acquisitions (GRAPPA)

This technique, GeneRalized Autocalibrating Partially Parallel Acquisitions (GRAPPA) is an extension of both the PILS and VD‐AUTO‐SMASH reconstruction techniques and provides unaliased images from each component coil prior to image combination.

The Role of Nonlinear Gradients in Parallel Imaging: A k-Space Based Analysis.

This work presents a simple and intuitive framework for describing the mechanics of image formation with nonlinear gradients, and uses this framework to review some the main classes of nonlinear encoding schemes.

O‐space imaging: Highly efficient parallel imaging using second‐order nonlinear fields as encoding gradients with no phase encoding

The theory is presented, an algorithm is introduced for image reconstruction, and simulations reveal that O‐space encoding achieves high encoding efficiency compared to sensitivity encoding (SENSE) radial k‐space trajectories, and parallel imaging technique with localized gradients (PatLoc), suggesting that O-space imaging holds great potential for accelerated scanning.

Spiral imaging: A critical appraisal

While spiral imaging may find its niche applications, most high‐speed imaging needs are more easily served by EPI, when ignoring parallel imaging strategies that are also applicable to EPI.

Image reconstruction by domain-transform manifold learning

A unified framework for image reconstruction—automated transform by manifold approximation (AUTOMAP)—which recasts image reconstruction as a data-driven supervised learning task that allows a mapping between the sensor and the image domain to emerge from an appropriate corpus of training data is presented.

Spread Spectrum Magnetic Resonance Imaging

The method, coined spread spectrum MRI or simply s MRI, consists of premodulating the signal of interest by a linear chirp before random -space under-sampling, and then reconstructing the signal with nonlinear algorithms that promote sparsity.

Sparse MRI: The application of compressed sensing for rapid MR imaging

Practical incoherent undersampling schemes are developed and analyzed by means of their aliasing interference and demonstrate improved spatial resolution and accelerated acquisition for multislice fast spin‐echo brain imaging and 3D contrast enhanced angiography.

Simultaneously driven linear and nonlinear spatial encoding fields in MRI

Recon reconstructions using six gradient‐encoding strategies were compared and it was demonstrated that the new radial‐based trajectory offers the PatLoc property of variable spatial resolution while maintaining finite resolution across the entire field‐of‐view.
