I just started doing research in MRI coil design for my professor and I'm trying to figure out some basic concepts. In particular, how does the Fourier transform and k-space play a role in the signal acquisition? From my reading, I just know that somehow the signal is acquired in k space and is reverse Fourier transformed back into spatial domain to produce the image. Any help or links would be appreciated.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks,
