The 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.
