We have recently introduced cross-term SPatiotemporal ENcoding (xSPEN), a technique with exceptional resilience to field heterogeneities. Like other single-shot methods, however, xSPEN’s resolution and SNR are intrinsically limited. This study explores a multi-scan, phase-encoded extension of xSPEN, which improves sensitivity while increasing resolution along both the phase-encoded and the slice-selection dimensions simultaneously. This reflects xSPEN’s unusual kernel whereby a y-axis can be sampled by a z-gradient and viceversa. Furthermore, as each phase-encoded xSPEN scan provides an entire 2D image, each low-resolution xSPEN scan in the set may be used to correct motions leading to very high definition 3D MRI capabilities.
