Parallel imaging is widely used in clinical routine practice. However, SNR degradation occurs due to undersampling and higher g-factor in higher acceleration factor. In this study, a new algorithm of parallel imaging reconstruction mitigating noise enhancement for fast spin echo sequence was proposed. The algorithm uses information of phase distribution of unaliased image, aliasing image, and folded image. SNR was compared in vivo T2 weighted image between full sampling, conventional parallel imaging, and proposed method. And higher SNR was demonstrated.
