Grid-Based Robust Field Map Estimation without the Noise-Bandwidth Trade-Off
The present invention is a new MRI acquisition that does not suffer from the noise-bandwidth trade-off commonly seen in current MRI measurement devices. This trade-off measuring seen in large range of inhomogeneity values will suffer from high levels of noise resulting in unreliable estimates of measurement. Accurate results are only guaranteed over...
