Interleaved multi-shot EPI (iEPI) is able to provide the short echo time and the short echo train length, which lead to reduce geometric distortions. iEPI with a minimum intersegment delay was presented for reducing motion artifacts due to a long acquisition time of iEPI and imaging like ssEPI, namely consecutive interleaved EPI (ciEPI). In this paper, we propose the combination between ciEPI and parallel imaging.
