In Cartesian parallel imaging, sub-sampling of phase encoding lines induces aliasing in the phase encoding direction of the reconstructed image. Conveniently, this aliasing exists in only the phase encoding dimension, and provided adequate sensitivity information of receiver coils, the SENSE parallel imaging technique removes this aliasing through multiplication by an unfolding matrix. For non-Cartesian acquisitions, such as projection acquisitions, there is no simple implementation of the SENSE algorithm because the aliased energy is dispersed throughout the image. Presented here is a non-iterative parallel imaging method for undersampled projection acquisitions.
