Dixon technique requires at least two images with different
echo times, which increases TSE echo spacing and TR, and therefore prolongs total
acquisition time. Slice acceleration may help improve imaging efficiency of TSE
fat-water Dixon imaging. In this study, we develop a multiband slice
accelerated TSE Dixon sequence and demonstrate the feasibility of SMS TSE Dixon
acquisition for efficient T2-weighted fat-water imaging.
