Recently, a developed approach to faster imaging has been spatial encoding with nonlinear magnetic fields, such as, PatLoc, O-Space, Null Space, 4D-RIO, etc. But, these efforts have focused on gradient echo imaging. Otherwise, Turbo Spin Echo (TSE) sequences provide much faster scan time than standard spin echo sequences. In this abstract, we demonstrate a hybrid of TSE and O-Space, developing an O-Space TSE sequence which is much faster than single echo O-Space imaging. Various techniques are applied to overcome the problems of artifacts and ambiguous T2 weighting. Simulations and experiment illustrate that the proposed method can inherit the advantages of both TSE and O-Space.
