Spatial encoding with reduced reliance on Bo gradients has always been an interest for specialized applications. Some investigators have demonstrated entirely replacing gradient encoding in one direction and rotating a receiver coil at very high rates to create a virtual array for RF spatial encoding. Here we demonstrate early results from a novel planar imaging technique for MR imaging that uses no gradients at all, performing all spatial encoding by a combination of RF encoding and rotating the object. The specific interest here is the development of a simple, low-cost imaging system that is robust to magnetic field homogeneity.
