Parallel imaging has proven to be a robust solution to the problem of acquisition speed in MRI. These methods are based on extracting spatial information from an array of multiple surface coils in order to speed up image acquisition. One of the most essential elements of any parallel imaging method is the information describing the coil sensitivity distribution throughout the sample. This paper covers some of the advanced methods to obtain coil sensitivity-related information, focusing… CONTINUE READING
