The turbo spin echo sequence is one of the most frequently used MR sequences in routine musculoskeletal exams. Its short scan time has allowed it to become a popular clinical choice because it reduces the possibility of motion artifact especially in patients with low tolerance for MR exams. In order to further shorten the scan time and increase temporal and/or spatial resolution, simultaneous multi-slice technique has been widely applied during brain image acquisition. In this study we tried to apply a prototypical SMS-TSE sequence to hand and foot imaging. Compared to the standard TSE sequence, the SMS-TSE had the same image quality and a shorter acquisition time.
