A partial Fourier acquisition strategy was
purpose-built. The method was applied to the imaging of
glomeruli in the kidney and compared to two commonly
used PF acquisition strategies. The imaging of glomeruli
is a recently introduced research area in MRI that could
potentially help the early diagnose of kidney diseases.
Knowledge from one full k-space acquired image was
obtained and used it to find the maximum frequency
harmonic required to resolve a selected spatial
frequency. From the maximum frequency harmonic, a
minimum range of harmonic frequencies required in
k-space was selected.
