Paper Abstract

A technique is described for the simultaneous acquisition of NMR data using two independent receiver coils surrounding the same region of tissue which enable the acquisition of all data necessary for an image in a reduced number of acquisitions. This results in a 50% reduction in minimum scan time, but potentially the technique may be extended to multiple receivers with a proportionally higher time savings. The algorithm and imaging procedures are described and example images are described which illustrate the reconstruction. Signal to noise and artifacts are discussed.
