Data Samples

1. Radial sampling of the analytical Shepp-Logan phantom

(text file, target image size should be128x128, each row is one sample, four numbers on each row for normalized (kx,ky) and their complex k-space data value, format: "kx value" "ky value" "real part of k-space" "imaginary part of k-space").

2. Full k-space data of a real image of transverse slice of a normal human brain for partial Fourier reconstruction data. (Download sample Matlab reading program here)

(text file, k-space size: 256x256, each row is one sample with real and imaginary parts, 2D k-space written in sequence row by row)

3. Synthetic aperture ultrasound data sets

(each is written in binary form - information about organization of data is included inside each archive - choose one archive only to work on)
