The short-lived effect of hyperpolarization of 13 C poses severe challenges to develop rapid and robust imaging techniques. The concentric rings trajectory is such a technique for hyperpolarized 13 C spectroscopic imaging that it is favorable for parallel imaging for additional acceleration. Preclinical studies have been performed to evaluate the feasibility of using concentric rings hyperpolarized 13 C MRSI parallel imaging. Simulation of g-factor maps demonstrates its advantages of the lower noise amplification compared to Cartesian counterpart. Concentric rings trajectory shows great potential to be applied with parallel imaging.
