These equations can be solved for pixel values in the matrix (the back-projection approach by rotation of the frequency gradient). This approach picks up a smaller field of view (FOV), but it is very sensitive to external magnetic field inhomogeneities B~ and magnetic field gradients. 6 Two-Dimensional (2-D) Fourier Transform (FT) The Fourier Transform method is not sensitive to either external magnetic field inhomogeneities or gradient field inhomogeneities and phase-encoding is performed. In the 2-D Fourier Transform method, the slice selection gradient (G z) (assuming an axial slice) , the gradient for frequency-encoding in the xdirection (G x) and the phase-encoding gradient (G y) in the y-direction are applied.
This depends on the gyro-magnetic ratio b), the gradient in the transverse x-direction (G x ) and the time of decay (t) in the x-direction. To get spatial information in the xdirection of the slice, another gradient G x (frequency encoding gradient or read out gradient) is applied in the x-direction during the maximum sampling time and the echo is received (read out) . The slice pixels experience a different gradient magnitude. For example, in the magnetic gradient from left to right, the center of this slice volume will not experience the gradient in the x-direction, but pixels on the right side of the slice will experience a higher net magnetic field and pixels on the left side will experience a lower net magnetic field.
The result is a tomographic image of the heart. In the phased array transducers beam, steering is carried out electronically using a large number of small tranducers (typically 32), which are fired in a very rapid , precisely controlled sequence. 5 schematically shows the principle of this method. The top element is pulsed first, and since it is very small, the ultrasound wave it generates is circular. Very soon afterwards the second element is pulsed, and so on. The individual small ultrasound waves combine to make one compound wave which, because of the pulsing sequence, travels at an angle to the axis of the transducer array.
