### help : Analyzing MRI raw data

• Follow

```I got an MRI raw data. Now how do I convert it to an MRI image?

These are the current steps that I follow :
1. translation of data to
R = input[i]*Cos((2*pi*f)*n/N)
I = input[i]*Sin((2*pi*f)*n/N)
2. Zero pad the R and I data to reach data size allowable for FFT
3. perform a Horizontal then a Vertical FFT
4. get the absolute value of R and I

Unfortunately, all I get is NO Image.

Anything I missed here??

also there are parameters that makes no sense to me, sampling rate, AD
samples, taps.
I understand thet qd points and qd cycle are used for the cosine and
sine tables.
Thanks

Jeff

```Thanks for the info Maurice.
after a lot of testing...I got the image.
it has something to do with the resampling filter that downsamples the
data to a size that can be proecessed by FFT.
Thanks again
