Spiral imaging possesses special characteristics that would benefit both research and clinical MR fields. However, its use is often limited due to the difficulties its implementation on a scanner entails. This problem frequently limits the spread and evolution of spirals and consequently their potential and multiple applications. The current study proposes a solution to this problem by demonstrating a rapid prototyping of a three-points Dixon spiral sequence. Results agree with the standard sequence used by the system manufacturer for the same purpose. The software used is open-source and makes possible the sequence implementation in multiple vendor scanners.
