Experimental Demonstration of Rosette Spectroscopic Imaging (RSI)

Boada F, Schirda C

Low concentrations and long T?s of the physiological Phosphorous 31 metabolites impose severe constraints on the spatial resolution and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of the images that can be obtained using conventional spatial encoding schemes.We demonstrate that Rosette Spectroscopic Imaging (RSI) can be used to obtain images of comparable SNR to conventional acquisition schemes but with significantly lower total acquisition time.
