Spine imaging requires lengthy examination times to yield sufficient SNR and to account for patient motion. Spiral MRI is a promising method for yielding high SNR acquisitions with reduced scan times and is more robust to patient motion. This work investigates the feasibility of applying spiral MRI to T1w imaging of the spine. Initial results indicate that spiral is well suited for anatomical spine imaging.
