It is widely accepted that forward and reflected readouts may not be combined into a single series of EPSI k-spaces. Consequently, measurements must be repeated with opposite readout polarities. Crisscrossing the acquisition of two separate template scans with opposite readout polarities permits the comparison of forward and reflected template ADCs that were acquired during two separate TRs but at the same time in the FID.
