Quantitative T2 Estimation Using Radial Turbo Spin Echo Imaging [article]

Mahesh B Keerthivasan, Ali Bilgin, Maria I Altbach
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Radial turbo spin echo (RADTSE) based methods have been shown to generate accurate T2 maps from a single acquisition using highly undersampled data.  ...  Techniques based on spin-echo or turbo spin-echo sequences are time consuming because they require multiple acquisitions for obtaining an adequate number of TE images for accurate T2 mapping.  ...  Figure 3: Undersampled k-space data at each TE can be reconstructed using either an echo sharing approach or model based iterative algorithms to generate a series of echo images.  ...
