Abstract

Spiral trajectories offer a number of attractive features for fast imaging. A practical problem for the implementation on routine magnetic resonance scanners, is the lack of appropriate and efficient reconstruction algorithms in the available scanner software. In this paper, a simple way to implement a spiral reconstruction algorithm is described that avoids the data interpolation required by gridding approaches commonly used. Using the optimized fast Fourier transform built into each scanner, it offers image reconstruction times of less than 1 second and thus allows the introduction of spiral imaging to routine scanners.
