Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Recently, the authors introduced least square quantization table (LSQT) method to accelerate the direct Fourier transform to reconstruct magnetic resonance images acquired using a spiral trajectory. In this paper, we will discuss the LSQT further in its adaptability, reusability and choice of the number of groups. The experimental results show that the LSQT method has better adaptability for the different reconstruction cases than the equal phase line (EPL) and Kaiser-Bessel gridding methods. Additionally, it can be reused for reconstructing different images of varied sizes.
