In MR imaging using a 3D TSE sequence with long echo trains, k-space reordering is a critical part of the sequence design, especially when Compressed Sampling(CS) is applied, because the irregular distribution of sampled views in CS leads to dramatic fluctuation of the train trajectories. In this work, It is shown that the fluctuation of train trajectories can be dramatically reduced by introducing a concept of 'echo ambiguity'in the flexible k-space reordering.
