Conventional 3D MR imaging typically uses 3D Fourier encoding acquisitions and/or 3D Fourier transform based reconstruction. However, for high resolution 3D imaging using these methods, SNR can be a limiting factor along with side effects such as ringing with Fourier based reconstruction. Here, we propose an alternative 3D high resolution imaging method where multiple 2D acquisitions are performed using a variable oblique-view pulse scheme. An image-based reconstruction is performed using an iterative back projection process thereby enabling flexible tradeoffs between SNR and resolution.
