gradient-recalled acquisition in the steady state

gradient-recalled acquisition in the steady state

a type of gradient echo sequence with free induction decay sampling in magnetic resonance imaging; also called "fast imaging with steady-state precession." This family of sequences is faster than spin echo techniques and is used for magnetic resonance angiography and cardiac imaging.
