Phase navigated multi-slab acquisitions has been proposed as an alternative way of doing 3D diffusion weighted imaging. Combining multi-slab readout with Stejskal-Tanner diffusion preparation requires sequence modifications, intricate phase correction and slab profile optimizations in order to work. Here we present methods and modifications improving the outcome of 3D multi-slab DWI.
