  • Publication number: 20220413079
    Abstract: Distortion generated in an image is effectively corrected in imaging using an EPI sequence such as DWI without extending an imaging time. After one excitation RF pulse of EPI is applied, a navigator scan in which the polarity of the phase encoding is opposite to that of the main scan is performed continuously to the main scan, and the distortion of the image by using the navigator scan data obtained by the navigator scan is corrected. In a case of multi-shot, phase information obtained from the navigator scan data for each shot is used to perform phase correction and multi-shot reconstruction on the main scan data of each shot.

  • Publication number: 20220221543
    Abstract: To provide a technique in which, in imaging using an EPI method, an occurrence of an artifact when phase correction is performed for each channel is avoided and the phase correction is accurately performed. A common phase correction value to be applied to data of all channels is calculated using pre-scan data of each channel. The common phase correction value is obtained by combining a difference phase obtained for each of the channels. The difference phase is obtained by complex integration, while an absolute value of each channel is maintained as it is. The combination is performed by complex average, and averaging processing according to a weight of the absolute value is performed. The occurrence of an artifact can be prevented by using the common phase correction value, and robust phase correction can be performed by including the weight of the absolute value.
