Discusses the advantages and disadvantages of using a Karhunen-Loeve (K-L) expansion of a training set of images to reduce the number of encodes required for a magnetic resonance (MR) image of a new object. One form of this technique has been proposed [Cao and Levin, 1993] and another implemented [Zientara et al., 1994]. The authors evaluate the error likely to be achieved as a function of the number of encodes and two technical problems: reduced SNR in the images and smoothing of the K-L functions in practice. As an alternative, they propose the use of joint best bases [Wickerhauser, 1994] derived from the local trigonometric library as an approximation to the K-L basis. These bases approach the rate-distortion characteristic achieved by the K-L basis, but they are easier to use in MRI and can be applied with existing methods for fast acquisition
