Iterative optimization in MRI is a large problem with many degrees of freedom. Depending on the cost function and parameters of interest, it may be beneficial to model errors from undersampling with non-Cartesian trajectories. This typically requires repeated use of the nonuniform FFT (NUFFT), which is computationally expensive. Here we propose an approximation based on a limited number of tissue types that eliminates the need for repeated NUFFTs, and allows a wide range of applications for sequence optimization in MRI and MRF.
