Abstract

See full text

Flow encoded NMR pulse sequences are employed to acquire data sets from which a set of angiographic images can be reconstructed depicting blood flow at successive phases during the cardiac cycle. The number of angiographic images is increased by selecting views from adjacent data sets to form interpolated data sets that are employed to reconstruct angiographic images depicting blood flow at cardiac phases between the successive phases.
