A magnetic resonance image may contain truncation artifacts if there are not enough high-frequency data when the conventional Fourier transform method is used for reconstruction. In this paper we propose a method for reducing the artifacts using a multilayer neural network. The network consists of one linear output layer and at least one nonlinear hidden layer. In this method the missing high-frequency components are predicted based on known low-frequency components and are used to reduce the truncation artifacts of the image. The method is tested with simulated data with good results. © 1993 IEEE
