Receive array coils play a pivotal role in modern MRI. MR spectroscopy can also benefit from the enhanced signal-to-noise ratio and field of view provided by a receive array. In any experiment using an n-element array, n different complex spectra will be recorded and each spectrum unavoidably contains an undesired noise contribution. Previous algorithms for combining spectra have ignored the fact that the noise detected by different array elements is correlated. We introduce here an algorithm… CONTINUE READING
