GRAPPA is a Parallel Imaging Technique, based on k-space which can be used to shorten the acquisition time or increase the spatial resolution in the same examination time.


Clinical Applications

  • Faster neuro imaging (Spine, head…)
  • Cardiac imaging with high temporal and spatial resolution
  • Fast dynamic contrast enhanced MR Angiography
  • Abdominal Imaging with shorter breath-hold times
  • Fast, high resolution orthopedic imaging
  • Fast whole-body imaging

Features & Benefits


  • GRAPPA works better with linear array coils like "Spine Coil"
  • GRAPPA can be used with small Field of View
  • High SNR of Tim matrix coils allows to trade speed for SNR for more applications

General Requirements
