Several successful iterative approaches have recently been proposed for parallel-imaging reconstructions of variable-density (VD) acquisitions, but they often induce substantial computational burden for non-Cartesian data. Here we propose a generalized variable-FOV PILS reconstruction 3D VD Cartesian and non-Cartesian data. The proposed method separates k-space into non-intersecting annuli based on sampling density, and sets the 3D reconstruction FOV for each annulus based on the respective sampling density. The variable-FOV method is compared against conventional gridding, PILS, and ESPIRiT reconstructions. Results indicate that the proposed method yields better artifact suppression compared to gridding and PILS, and improves noise conditioning relative to ESPIRiT, enabling fast and high-quality reconstructions of 3D datasets.
