Paper Abstract

Frequently MRI data does not cover completely the desired region of k space. We have investigated the reconstruction of MR images from incomplete data using the MEMSYS 3 maximum entropy algorithm. We compare conventional modulus images with the maximum entropy images. We show the importance of incorporating spatial correlation into the maximum entropy reconstructions in order to minimize truncation artifacts.
