The long scan time of the brain MRI limits its applicability in high resolution 3D isotropic imaging. By using the recent Autocalibrated Parallel Imaging Reconstruction for Extended Multi-Contrast (APIR4EMC) method, we propose a high resolution (1 mm) 3D isotropic multi-contrast (T1, T1-Fatsat, T2, PD, FLAIR) brain imaging method with scan time around 10 min on a 3T MR scanner with an 8-channel brain coil. Experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of this method.
