A modified coil-sensitivity based calibration operator was incorporated into non-Cartesian CG-like SPIRiT. While maintaining image quality, significant reduction in reconstruction time has been demonstrated for simulated spiral and radial data. In addition, the exchangeability of the two consecutive k-space interpolation steps with a diagonal matrix multiplication has been shown. Depending on the number of k-space samples, reconstruction times on the order of the highly optimized NUFFT gridder are achieved.
