The technique of parallel transmission in combination with spatially selective excitation allows for reduction of the field of view in the phase encoding direction. In this study the novel principle of multi-slice inner volume imaging is presented and the advantages are illustrated when combined with single shot EPI. The method was implemented successfully in DWI applications on the Bruker BioSpec animal system.
