Referenceless Interleaved Echo Planar Imaging

The patent below describes a method for obtaining magnetic resonance images using ?echo planar imaging? and related techniques, without the use of ?reference scans?. The patent describes a method for calibrating a scanner for time delays and phase shifts and using this a priori knowledge to avoid the need for reference scans, as well as simplification of the image reconstruction process. This work describes the use of ?compensation blips? to correct for gradient hardware timing misregistrations when imaging in oblique coordinates.
