Aortic stiffness is an important biomarker of cardiovascular diseases. Magnetic Resonance Elastography (MRE) is a non-invasive tool for measuring in-vivo aortic stiffness. Gradient-Recalled Echo (GRE) MRE sequences are widely employed for aortic MRE. However, GRE MRE sequences are sensitive to T2* decay, leading to signal loss and lower Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR). In this work, a cardiac-gated Spin-Echo Echo-Planar Imaging (SE-EPI) MRE sequence was developed and validated against GRE MRE. Similar aortic stiffness was observed between the two techniques. Moreover, shorter scan time, higher first-harmonic amplitude, and Octahedral Shear Strain-Based SNR (OSS-SNR) were achieved using SE-EPI MRE (p<0.05).
