Partial Fourier (pF) is another approach to reducing the number of k-space lines acquired in order to produce an echo planar image. (It can also be used for non-EPI sequences but here we will focus on its use for EPI. ) Like parallel imaging methods, pF is intended to speed up data acquisition, usually as a way to increase the spatio-temporal resolution. However, unlike parallel imaging techniques such as GRAPPA, pF doesn’t require any sort of reference scan; all the information needed to reconstruct a particular EPI slice is contained in that (partial) slice acquisition.
