In this work we present a method to do diffusion weighted imaging at 1.3 mm isotropic resolution with full brain coverage, using multi-slab multi-echo spin echo-EPI. We also suggest a method on how to correct for diffusion gradient induced phase for multi-slab acquisitions along with slab profile intensity optimization.
