Fast spin echo (FSE) imaging plays a central role in clinical MRI. When combined with flip angle modulation, very long echo train can be used without excessive blurring, which makes 3D FSE imaging feasible in clinical setting. FSE requires CPMG condition. However, this condition can be violated in a number of applications due to system imperfection and result in image artifacts. We recently proposed a non-CPMG FSE acquisition based on a phase cycling method. However, this approach doubles scan time. Here we discussed the methods to reduce the scan time of this approach.
