Local k-space, the spatial derivative of the encoded
phase has been used to visualize and design strategies
to mitigate the spatially-varying encoding of nonlinear
gradient encoding. To reduce the local k-space asymmetry
of O-space imaging, the phase prior to readout is
adjusted for each readout in a technique called
prephasing, first proposed by Gallichan et. al.
Prephased O-space imaging shows reduced MSE, though
artifacts from previous simulations of asymmetrical
k-space were not corroborated. Parallel receiver
information may sufficiently localize signal conditional
on appropriate imaging parameters.
