MRI faces fundamental limitations in terms of sensitivity and speed. These limitations can be effectively tackled by the transition to higher field strengths and parallel imaging technology. Owing to largely independent physics, the two approaches can be readily combined. Considering the specific advantages and disadvantages of high field strength and parallel imaging, it is found that the combination is particularly synergistic. In the joint approach, the two concepts play different roles… CONTINUE READING
