Optimizing the gVERSE RF Pulse Sequence: An Evaluation of Two Competitive Software Algorithms

Abstract

Radio Frequency (RF) pulses cause elevated patient temperatures during Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) procedures. Generalized Variable Rate Selective Excitation (gVERSE) is a co-design method for Radio Frequency (RF) pulse and slice gradient which minimizes Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) (the accepted predictor of patient heating). After developing a… (More)
