We developed new calibration kernels with an alternative undersampling scheme (CASS) for parallel imaging to reduce coherent aliasing artifacts and noises. By sampling k-space lines with irregular and blockwise patterns, incoherent aliasing patterns and noise signals were spread in reconstructed CASS images. Noteworthily, the CASS method outperformed the conventional GRAPPA method at higher acceleration factors.
