We re-calculated a VFA considering a predefined slice excitation profile without changing RF excitation pulse by a computer simulation. By applying a modified VFA to consecutive interleaved multi-shot EPI (ciEPI) schemes, a intersegment magnitude variation was reduced and a SNR of images was improved.
