Partial k-space acquisition is an important technique to reduce scan time or shorten echo time and is often used together with parallel imaging. In this work, we combine a partial k-space acquisition with the Direct Virtual Coil (DVC) parallel imaging reconstruction method. In vivo imaging results compare coil-by-coil reconstruction results to DVC.
