In SPIRiT image
reconstruction the kernel usually consists of all elements within a square. The
number of elements in such a kernel increases rapidly as the kernel size
increases, especially for 3D reconstructions. Thus, a large kernel requires a sizable
calibration region in k-space and demands significant time for calibration. In
this work we proposed and validated a new image reconstruction approach that
uses a custom SPIRiT kernel geometry, which we call SPOT. We show that a SPOT
kernel is much faster to compute and results in no loss of image quality
compared to the traditional SPIRiT kernel.
