The cylindrical encoding as a novel method for high resolution imaging without requiring the use of high strength gradients is introduced. Phase encoding in the circumferential direction is obtained by alternating transmission using a loopless catheter antenna and a birdcage coil in two shot fast spin echo pulse sequence. The readout is carried out in the direction of main magnetic field. The MR signal is received as the radial projection of the spins. The image is reconstructed by inverse Fourier transforming the rearranged projection data.
