Parallel imaging reconstruction has been successfully applied to magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) to reduce scan times. For undersampled k-space data on a Cartesian grid, the reconstruction can be achieved in image domain using a sensitivity encoding (SENSE) algorithm for each spectral data point. Alternative methods for reconstruction with undersampled Cartesian k-space data are the SMASH and GRAPPA algorithms that do the reconstruction in the k-space domain. To reconstruct undersampled MRSI data with arbitrary k-space trajectories, image-domain-based iterative SENSE algorithm has been applied at the cost of long computing times. In this paper, a new k-space domain-based parallel spectroscopic imaging reconstruction with arbitrary k-space trajectories using k-space sparse matrices is applied to MRSI with spiral k-space trajectories. The algorithm achieves MRSI reconstruction with reduced memory requirements and computing times. The results are demonstrated in both phantom and in vivo studies. Spectroscopic images very similar to that reconstructed with fully sampled spiral k-space data are obtained at different reduction factors.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper we propose an efficient sparse reconstruction scheme for the parallel MRSI data acquired using a fast spiral scheme. We model the system using the MR priors estimated from the water reference scan. In our sparse reconstruction approach, we minimize the total variation and ℓ<sub>1</sub> norm of the compartmentalized MRSI data in order to reduce noise, inhomogeneity distortions, and spectral leakage. We demonstrate significant improvement for in vivo brain results when compared to classical regularized SENSE MRSI reconstruction.

    ABSTRACT: Summary form only given. High values of pressure and temperature can be achieved under electrical discharges in liquids. This explains the interest in their widespread application both in physical experiments on pulsed power and in industry. A wide-range of quantitative information on these phenomena was analysed and systematized at the Institute of Pulse Research and Engineering due to investigations carried out during the last few years. The aims of this paper are to determine the main trends of R&D in the field of numerical simulation of electrical discharges in liquids, to show the achieved results, and to expose some new problems for electrical discharge modeling

    ABSTRACT: High-resolution 2D NMR spectra in inhomogeneous fields can be achieved by the use of intermolecular multiple-quantum coherences and shearing reconstruction of 3D data. However, the long acquisition time of 3D spectral data is generally unbearable for in vivo applications. To overcome this problem, two pulse sequences dubbed as iDH-COSY and iDH-JRES were proposed in this paper. Although 3D acquisition is still required for the new sequences, the high-resolution 2D spectra can be obtained with a relatively short scanning time utilizing the manipulation of indirect evolution period and sparse sampling. The intermolecular multiple-quantum coherence treatment combined with the raising and lowering operators was applied to derive analytical signal expressions for the new sequences. And the experimental observations agree with the theoretical predictions. Our results show that the new sequences possess bright perspective in the applications on in vivo localized NMR spectroscopy.
