Title:Multi-contrast reconstruction in the context of parallel imaging

Abstract: In a clinical exam, multi-contrast images are often scanned with the same field of view (FOV) for complementary diagnostic information. There are sharable information among these images, such as coil sensitivity and anatomical information. The sharable information can be used for fast imaging and robust imaging. In this presentation, several methods on how to use the sharable information for fast imaging are introduced. The difficulties and potential solutions are also discussed. Preliminary clinical evaluation demonstrates the proposed method can have great impact to faster clinical scan.
