3D Fast Spin Echo with variable flip angle uses low flip angle refocus pulses and long echo trains. The effective TE of FSE corresponds to echo train number of k-space center. To make TE flexible, novel view ordering methods were developed in this paper. Phantom and volunteer were scanned with conventional and novel view orderings. Ringing, blur, signal intensity and contrast were measured and compared.
