The presented work investigates a real-time imaging approach to chest MRI on a 21.8cm bore scanner dedicated for neonatal examination within the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). This approach is based on the development of a 10-channel small coil array, a fast imaging pulse sequence, and an iterative image reconstruction algorithm. It is experimentally demonstrated that real-time imaging can provide high-quality cardiac and pulmonary images for improved clinical diagnosis in premature babies within the NICU.
