Single Point Imaging with minimized phase encoding interval
Tomanek B, Gruwel M, Latta P
We propose a modification of the Single Point Imaging (SPI), based on the minimization of the phase encoding interval for further signal to noise ratio (SNR) optimization. The results of calculations were confirmed experimentally using 11.7T MRI system. This method is particularly beneficial when the maximum gradient amplitude is limited and the resulting SNR suffers from the T2-related signal attenuation.
