Since half k-space reconstruction reduces scan time while keeping spatial resolution, it can be used for T2* weighted images such as functional MRI that requires fairly long TE. Functional MRI is sensitive to off-resonance because there exist large susceptibility variations in air-tissue interfaces such as sinuses. Existing half k-space reconstruction is vulnerable to off-resonance since it might lose most of the image energy when there is a large amount of phase shift. In this study, we suggest a new half k-space reconstruction method that is more robust to off-resonance compared to existing reconstruction method.
