Abstract

This paper presents a fast spin echo (FSE) imaging method that employs circular sampling of k-space. The technique has been implemented on a 2 Tesla imaging system and validated on both phantoms and living animals. Experimental studies have shown that circular sampling can produce artifact- free FSE images without the need of phase correction. Although not fully explored, preliminary results also show that circular sampling may have advantages over the conventional rectilinear FSE in signal-to-noise ratio and imaging efficiency. A major disadvantage is the increased sensitivity to off- resonance effects. The authors expect that the FSE technique with circular sampling will find its applications in magnetic resonance microscopy, neuro- functional imaging, and real-time dynamic studies.
