Flow effects in localized quadratic, partial fourier MRA

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

2 Scopus citations


A pulse sequence for inflow-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography, including localized quadratic encoding, partial-Fourier slice selection, and spiral in-plane encoding, is analyzed. The through-plane encoding method is discussed in a space-spatial frequency context to illustrate some of its properties. This pulse sequence has the advantages of being faster and more robust to turbulent flow than conventional inflow-enhanced methods. Simulations show the effect of different parameters on the modulation- transfer function of the resulting images. A flow phantom is used to verify some of the simulation results.
