MR-image reconstruction/enhancement

Gibbs Ringing Removal

Gibbs-ringing is a well known artifact which manifests itself as spurious oscillations in the vicinity of sharp image transients, e.g. at tissue boundaries. In this project we invetsigate a simple and robust method which exploits a different view on the Gibbsphenomena. The truncation in k-space can be interpreted as a convolution with a sinc-function in image space. Hence, the severity of the artifacts depends on how the sinc-function is sampled. We propose to reinterpolate the image based on local, subvoxel shifts to sample the ringing pattern at the zero-crossings of the oscillating sinc-function.
