|Method and magnetic resonance device for image acquisition|
In a method and magnetic resonance apparatus for acquiring image data using a sequence in which k-space corresponding to the imaging area is scanned in a first region of k-space, which does not include the center of k-space, radially along spokes emanating from the center of k-space, with at least two phase coding gradients being completely ramped up before the excitation pulse, and in a second central region of k-space, which remains without the first region, in a cartesian manner. For contrast increase, a pre-pulse is provided before a predetermined number of individual measurements.
|Methods and apparatus for flash intensity value management based on a ttl value|
Methods for providing a flash management feature (“fmf”) in a camera system include obtaining a flash intensity value calculated for a flash device by a camera, saving the calculated flash intensity value in memory, accepting a user-provided adjustment of the calculated value, saving the adjusted flash intensity value in a memory, and providing, when the camera transmits the calculated value to the flash device for use during image acquisition, the adjusted value to the flash device instead of the calculated value. A communication device to provide a fmf includes a microprocessor configured to obtain a calculated flash intensity value from a camera, a memory, and a user interface configured to display and allow a user to adjust the calculated value.
|Systems and methods for relating images to each other by determining transforms without using image acquisition metadata|
Systems and methods for relating images to each other by determining transform functions between the images and the three-dimensional world coordinate system of the object depicted in the image, without using image acquisition metadata are disclosed. Points of interest are independently selected on each image.
