MR-guided HIFU in the brain currently lacks from insufficient spatial and temporal monitoring of the effect of ultrasound. In this study, we combine simultaneous multi-slice (SMS) echo planar imaging (EPI) technique with in-plane parallel imaging to achieve high spatial resolution with large volume coverage and/or short acquisition time during temperature mapping at 3T. The sequence was tested in vivo in a human brain with different multiband (MB) factors. SMS reconstruction and temperature mapping were computed using the Gadgetron framework. Then, validation was performed on an ex vivo chicken muscle during HIFU sonication to validate the method.
