Slab selection by the dual echo-spacing technique in SPACE with non-selective refocusing pulses needs averaging with phase cycling ans is sensitive to chemical shift artifacts during excitation. A new technique, VERSE-SPACE is presented in this abstract to provide faster acquisition speed and better slab profile than the previous technique.
