We proposed PROPELLER QBI technique using PROPELLER EPI acquisition for acceleration to reduce scan time. Herein we used PROPELLER keyhole reconstruction to form 252 high-resolution DWIs from 252 low-resolution blade DWIs. In our preliminary results, this approach can reduce whole brain QBI images to 18 minutes.
