Reconstructions of phase contrast, phased array multicoil data

Magn Reson Med. 1994 Sep;32(3):330-4. doi: 10.1002/mrm.1910320308.


We present a reconstruction method for phased array multicoil data that is compatible with phase contrast MR angiography. The proposed algorithm can produce either complex difference or phase difference angiograms. Directional flow and quantitative information are preserved with the phase difference reconstruction. The proposed method is computationally efficient and avoids intercoil cancellation errors near the velocity aliasing boundary. Feasibility of the method is demonstrated on human scans.
