Magnetic Resonance Elastography (MRE) studies of cognitively impaired patients must be performed in a clinically acceptable amount of time. Previous 3D studies were prohibitively long. The goal of this work was to capture the full 3D wave field using a 2D multi-slice SE-EPI sequence. 24 elastography slices can be acquired in as little as 3 minutes.
