We propose convolutional neural network (CNN) to accelerate Slice Encoding for Metal Artifact Correction (SEMAC). The concept was tested on metal‑embedded agarose phantoms and patients with metallic neuro plates in the cerebral region. CNN was trained to output images with high SEMAC factor from input images with low SEMAC factor, achieving acceleration factors of 2 or 3. The metal artifacts in low SEMAC factor data were visually and quantitatively suppressed well in the output of CNN (p<0.01), which was comparable to that of the high SEMAC factor. The study shows the feasibility of reducing scan time of SEMAC through CNN.
