High-resolution single-shot variable density spirals
with acquisition densities matched to a Gaussian
smoothing kernel are presented. Concurrent field
monitoring and advanced image reconstruction (iterative
SENSE and static B0-correction) proved to be
instrumental to arrive at a high image quality.
Matched-filter spirals increased tSNR of time series
after fMRI-typical post-processing compared to
Archimedean spirals and in summary, realize the best
match to Gaussian smoothing kernel to date.
