Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR ENHANCED MULTIPLE COIL MR IMAGING
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL PERMETTANT D'OBTENIR UNE MEILLEURE IMAGERIE A PLUSIEURS BOBINES
Abstract:
(EN) The subject invention pertains to a method and apparatus for enhanced multiple coil imaging. The subject invention is advantageous for use in imaging devices, such as MRIs where multiple images can be combined to form a single composite image. In one specific embodiment, the subject method and apparatus utilize a novel process of converting from the original signal vector in the time domain to allow the subject invention to be installed in-line with current MRI devices.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil permettant d'obtenir une meilleure imagerie à plusieurs bobines radiofréquence. L'invention peut être avantageusement utilisée dans des dispositifs d'imagerie, tels que des appareils d'imagerie par résonance magnétique, qui permettent d'obtenir plusieurs images combinées afin de former une seule image composée. Dans un mode de réalisation spécifique, le procédé et l'appareil selon l'invention utilisent un nouveau processus de conversion à partir du vecteur de signal original dans le domaine temporel de façon que l'appareil selon l'invention puisse être installé en ligne avec les dispositifs d'imagerie par résonance magnétique actuels.
