Reducing oblique flow effects in interleaved EPI with a centric reordering technique

Magn Reson Med, 45 (4), pp.623-629

Segmented interleaved echo planar imaging offers a fast and efficient approach to magnetic resonance angiography. Unfortunately, this technique is particularly sensitive to oblique flow in the imaging plane. In this work, a mathematical analysis of oblique flow effects for several types of k-space coverage is presented. The conventional linear acquisition scheme, an alternating centric and a nonalternating centric encoding scheme are compared with respect to their flow properties. It is shown both by simulations and imaging experiments that artifacts from oblique in-plane flow are effectively reduced by both centric reordered phase-encoding schemes. The nonalternating centric acquisition scheme is preferred to the alternating centric scheme due to the smoother phase error transition in k-space in the presence of obliquely-angled flow.
