A new diffusion weighted sequence is developed based on segmented spiral and experimentally demonstrated. With this method, all the segments for covering the desired k-space are acquired after a single diffusion weighting. Compared to the previous multi-shot methods, the new method is less sensitive to motion and does not require navigators.
