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.
