In this work, an experimental setup has been designed in which a computer-controlled motion stage is used to translate an object through the imaging FOV during data acquisition in an attempt to mimic a bolus of contrast material traveling through vasculature. Since the motion is computer controlled and the dynamic elements of the phantom are well-defined with sharp edges, the input to the HYPR process is well-known. We conduct two experiments: Experiment 1 investigates the temporal and spatial fidelity of HYPR processing; Experiment 2 compares the fidelity of HYPR against that of current clinical MRA techniques.
