In this work, adaptive combine (AC) reconstruction was optimized on breast and knee sodium MRI data, acquired with a 14-channel breast and a 15-channel knee coils. AC reconstruction was compared with the standard sum-of-square (SoS) reconstruction. The optimal reconstruction parameters were: the lowest interpolation factor of two and an overlap of the analysis block of two to eight pixels. Images reconstructed using the AC had lower noise floor when compared to the SoS. However, when a multichannel coil with low noise correlation between elements is used, the advantage of AC reconstruction decreases.
