HEALPix View-order for 3D Radial Self-Navigated Motion-Corrected ZTE MRI

  title={HEALPix View-order for 3D Radial Self-Navigated Motion-Corrected ZTE MRI},
  author={Curtis Andrew Corum and Stanley J Kruger and Vincent A. Magnotta},
  journal={arXiv: Medical Physics},
Compressed sensing has reinvigorated the field of non-Cartesian sampling in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Until now there has been no 3D radial view-order which meets all the desired characteristics for simultaneous dynamic/high-resolution imaging, such as for self-navigated motion-corrected high resolution neuroimaging. In this work, we examine the use of Hierarchical Equal Area iso-Latitude Pixelization (HEALPix) for generation of three-dimensional (3D) radial view-orders for MRI, and…

Temporal stability of adaptive 3D radial MRI using multidimensional golden means

It is shown that the golden 3D‐PR method can substantially improve the temporal stability of quantitative measurements made from dynamic images when compared to conventional 3D radial approaches of k‐space sampling.

Three‐dimensional analytical magnetic resonance imaging phantom in the Fourier domain

It will be shown that the k‐space signal derived from the phantom can be analytically expressed, enabling one to bypass the need for interpolation in the Fourier domain when testing image‐reconstruction algorithms.

Sampling density compensation in MRI: Rationale and an iterative numerical solution

This method uses only the coordinates of the sampled data; unlike previous methods, it does not require knowledge of the trajectories and can easily handle trajectories that “cross” in k‐space.

Rapid gridding reconstruction with a minimal oversampling ratio

Using a minimal oversampling ratio and presampled kernel, this work is able to perform a three-dimensional reconstruction in one-eighth the time and requiring one-third the computer memory versus using an oversamplings ratio of two and a Kaiser-Bessel convolution kernel, while maintaining the same level of accuracy.

HEALPix: A Framework for High-Resolution Discretization and Fast Analysis of Data Distributed on the Sphere

This paper considers the requirements and implementation constraints on a framework that simultaneously enables an efficient discretization with associated hierarchical indexation and fast analysis/synthesis of functions defined on the sphere and demonstrates how these are explicitly satisfied by HEALPix.

Acoustic noise reduction in MRI using Silent Scan: an initial experience.

T1-weighted Silent Scan is a promising technique for acoustic noise reduction and improved patient comfort in neuroimaging with regard to subjective and objective noise levels and image quality.

A strategy for sampling on a sphere applied to 3D selective RF pulse design

A simple expression for a continuous sample path through a nearly uniform distribution of points on the surface of a sphere is presented and used to design 3D selective inversion and spin‐echo pulses.

The HEALPix Primer

The HEALPix concept and the mathematical software based on it introduced in this primer meet the challenges which future high resolution and large volume CMB data sets including the MAP and Planck mission products will present.

A Comparison of Popular Point Configurations on S^2

There are many ways to generate a set of nodes on the sphere for use in a variety of problems in numerical analysis. We present a survey of quickly generated point sets on S2, examine their
