A method includes implementing a coupled voltage controlled oscillator (vco) array with a number of vcos, and mixing local oscillator (lo) signals generated through the number of vcos of the coupled vco array with signals from antenna elements of an antenna array to introduce differential phase shifts in signal paths coupled to the antenna elements during performing beamforming with the antenna array. The method also includes accommodating differential coupling between the vcos to improve immunity to noise and/or interference during the beamforming compared to the vcos accommodating single-ended coupling therebetween..

Method and apparatus for magnetic resonance imaging
The method and system for correcting motion-induced phase errors in magnetic resonance imaging (mri) use a phase shift of the non-phase encoded reference echo-signal accumulated during the diffusion-weighting in order to characterize bulk motion and tissue deformation and to compensate their effect for correcting the diffusion/perfusion-weighted image. The sequences unbalanced with respect to the first motion derivative are used for distinguishing the perfusion component.
