Wideband MRI is a technique that can either speed up the scan time or increase image resolution by acquiring images of multiple locations simultaneously. Our preliminary result demonstrate the 3D scanning of rat spine by using 4x acceleration (W=4) Wideband MRI technique, which can reduced the scanning from 40 minutes to 10 minutes. We have showed the possibility to complete the 3D spine imaging within 10 minutes which is valuable in clinical study.
