Sensitivity-encoded spectroscopic imaging (SENSE-SI) reduces scanning time by using multiple coils for parallel signal acquisition. Significant artifacts could be induced by SENSE-SI, mainly due to the low-resolution nature of spectroscopic imaging. The present study introduces a novel method to reduce the artifacts. High-resolution sensitivity maps are used in low-resolution SENSE reconstruction. An intermediate unaliased image is obtained after SENSE reconstruction. Based on the intermediate image, the sensitivity maps are optimized and then the SENSE reconstruction is performed again. The final unaliased image has significantly reduced artifacts.
