  • Publication number: 20190041478
    Abstract: In a method and apparatus for determining measurement protocol parameters of a magnetic resonance (MR) image, a first MR image exhibiting first contrast properties, is read into a computer and at least one first contrast ratio is determined in the computer from the first contrast properties. The computer then determines the measurement protocol parameters dependent on the at least one first contrast ratio, in order to generate a second MR image exhibiting second contrast properties such that the second contrast properties approximate, as closely as possible, to the first contrast properties. The measurement protocol parameters are presented as an output from the computer.

  • Patent number: 9746538
    Abstract: Magnetic resonance imaging uses regularized SENSE reconstruction for a reduced field of view, but minimizes folding artifacts. A reference scan is oversampled relative to the reduced field of view. The oversampling provides coil sensitivity information for a region greater than the reduced field of view. The reconstruction of the object for the reduced field of view using the coil sensitivities for the larger region may have fewer folding artifacts.

  • Patent number: 9689947
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method of selecting a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) sampling strategy includes selecting a base variable-density sampling pattern and determining a scan time associated with the base variable-density sampling pattern. A modified variable-density sampling pattern is created by modifying one or more parameters of the base variable-density sampling pattern to maximize a sampled k-space area without increasing the scan time. Next, a scan is performed on an object of interest using the modified variable-density sampling pattern to obtain a sparse MRI dataset. Then a sparse reconstruction process is applied to the sparse MRI dataset to yield an image of the object of interest.

  • Patent number: 9684979
    Abstract: A method of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of a volume undergoing repetitive motion includes obtaining source slice data indicative of a plurality of source slices during the repetitive motion, and obtaining anchor slice data indicative of an anchor slice during the repetitive motion. The anchor slice intersects the plurality of source slices. The source slice data and the anchor slice data are reconstructed. A three-dimensional image assembly procedure is implemented to generate, for each phase of the repetitive motion, volume data based on a respective subset of the reconstructed source slice data. For each phase of the repetitive motion, the respective subset of slices is selected based on a correlation of the source slice data and the anchor slice data along an intersection between each source slice and the anchor slice. The source slice data of the selected subset is corrected for misalignment with the anchor slice data.

  • Patent number: 9453895
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for learning a tight frame includes acquiring undersampled k-space data over a time period using an interleaved process. An average of the undersampled k-space data is determined and a reference image is generated based on the average of the undersampled k-space data. Next, a tight frame operator is determined based on the reference image. Then, a reconstructed image data is generated from the undersampled k-space data via a sparse reconstruction which utilizes the tight frame operator.
