This work describes an enhancement of the gapped SWIFT (SWeep Imaging with Fourier Transformation) method utilizing multiple sidebands to achieve highly increased excitation and acquisition bandwidth. The method is called Multi-Band-SWIFT (or MB-SWIFT). Due to its tailored (striped) excitation pattern, MB-SWIFT efficiently uses transmitter power and has increased sensitivity as compared to the other techniques used for ultrashort TE imaging. Additionally, MB-SWIFT provides a way to obtain additional information about fast and slow relaxing spins in a single scan. These features make MB-SWIFT an attractive method for numerous MRI applications including musculoskeletal imaging.
