The aim of this project was to implement a real-time data and reconstruction system for imaging of the bowel by using a constant azimuthal profile based on the Golden Ratio. The reconstruction gave the operator a unique possibility to interactively reconstruct images with an optimal compromise between a true temporal resolution and a sliding window reconstruction in real-time. This study demonstrates that real-time images of the bowel may improve the diagnosis and documentation of patients with Crohns disease, bowel stenosis or altered bowel motility and is a step toward using MRI for imaging moving organs on-line in real-time.
