Acquisition time reduction in magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging using discrete wavelet encoding.

Abstract : This paper describes a new magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) technique based upon the discrete wavelet transform to reduce acquisition time and cross voxel contamination. Prototype functions called wavelets are used in wavelet encoding to localize defined regions in localized space by dilations and translations. Wavelet encoding in MRSI is achieved by matching the slice selective RF pulse profiles to a set of dilated and translated wavelets. Single and dual band slice selective excitation and refocusing pulses, with profiles resembling Haar wavelets, are used in a spin-echo sequence to acquire 2D-MRSI wavelet encoding data. The 2D space region is spanned up to the desired resolution by a proportional number of dilations (increases in the localization gradients) and translations (frequency shift) of the Haar wavelets (RF pulses). Acquisition time is reduced by acquiring successive MR signals from regions of space with variable size and different locations with no requirement for a TR waiting time between acquisitions. An inverse wavelet transform is performed on the data to produce the correct spatial MR signal distribution.
