interactions of MRI sequence components within complex techniques are hard to
explain, grasp and extend using common modularity approaches. This results in
poor developability and calculation efficiency. The proposed algorithm yields a
new sequence description approach that resolves the component parameter
dependencies and enables the calculation of arbitrary module parameters using
the least amount of calculation steps. The algorithm has been used on a twice-refocused, spin-echo diffusion MRI sequence to simplify its description and boost the
calculation of critical parameters during sequence preparation calculation.
