For similar reasons the noise level does not have the common square-root dependence on the number of samples taken. In the case of Cartesian sampling with reconstruction as initially explained, this can be made yet clearer. For one particular voxel we compare the noise levels as obtained with full and reduced Cartesian Fourier encoding. According to Appendix D the partial image noise matrix for the relevant unfolding step is X $ 1 nK (SH %&1S)&1. [20] Let # denote the index of the voxel under consideration within the set of voxels to be separated. With full Fourier encoding no aliasing occurs and the matrix S has only one column. Note that this single column is identical to the #-th column of S in the case of reduced Fourier encoding. Thus, the ratio of the noise levels obtained in that voxel is given by #X #,#red #X #,#full $ #R #[(SH %&1S)&1]#,# (SH %&1S)#,# , [21] where S corresponds to reduced Fourier encoding and R denotes the factor by which the number of samples is reduced with respect to full Fourier encoding: R $ nK full nK red . ... |
