T2W FSE-PROPELLER is robust to susceptibility artifacts and bulk motion, but requires longer acquisition times compared to conventional FSE methods. Recently, a reduced Field-Of-View PROPELLER sequence using rotating outer volume suppression method has been proposed and optimized to reduce the scan time for small FOV and high-resolution T2W imaging. However, image SNR is comparatively lower compared to the conventional PROPELLER with phase oversampling. In this work, a deep learning based PROPELLER reconstruction method was used to improve the SNR and image quality of the reduced Field-Of-View PROPELLER.
