3D MRI is becoming increasingly popular in clinical diagnostic imaging and interventional studies. In multi-slice acquisitions, the through-plane resolution is limited by the slice selection profile. We present here a simple and scalable technique to improve through-plane resolution in 3D multi-slice acquisitions that can be employed on any set of MRI data by acquiring a few extra datasets.
