Fetal diffusion MRI analysis is often limited by the ability of the
conventional ssEPI to allow an efficient, high-resolution
acquisition, able to produce multi-shell high angular resolution dMRI
data as required by advanced analysis tools. This abstract presents a
novel, multiband accelerated, sinusoidal, quiet and efficient ssEPI
acquisition. The first results on 3 fetuses with 54 directions show
promising data quality and significantly decreased scan time.
