Optimal control theory in diffusion MRI

Design of radio-frequency pulse shapes ameliorating specific features of the spin system is very well known and important problem in modern magnetic resonance imaging. Increased interest in ultra high field magnets and parallel transmit systems introduced optimal control theory in this area for its ability to handle multiple controls and constraints efficiently. This project is devoted to development and implementation of novel optimal control approaches in diffusion weighted imaging technique in order to increase spatial resolution, obtain better tissue contrasts and suppress multiple artefacts typical for diffusion experiments such as motion, long acquisition time, eddy current distortions etc.
