Abstract

Echo-volumar imaging is a hyperfast technique capable of producing volumetric magnetic resonance images in times of the order of 100 ms. By increasing the gradient strengths and introducing real-time processing and display, we have been able to produce the first 16×16×16 voxel snapshot head images on volunteers.
