Efficient Brain Structural Imaging

Faster image encoding via ‘Wave-CAIPI’ acquisition & high channel count receiver array. The faster encoding enables scans to be performed more quickly, to reduce cost and also reduce artifacts in motion-prone populations. Faster encoding can also be used to obtain more detailed information.
