Dynamically adaptive MRI with encoding by singular value decomposition

Magn Reson Med. 1994 Aug;32(2):268-74. doi: 10.1002/mrm.1910320219.


A new MRI spatial encoding method based upon the singular value decomposition (SVD) and using spatially selective RF excitation is described. This encoding technique is particularly applicable to dynamic adaptive MRI, because it provides a near minimal set of spatial encoding profiles computed using an image estimate that is determined from a previously obtained image. Experimental results are presented for two cases, which exemplify its potential use in different dynamic imaging tasks. SVD-encoded MRI has demonstrated to be a highly efficient encoding scheme.
