The radial GRASE hybrid sequence is presented for high-resolution Neuro-imaging at 7T. In this sequence, the number of refocusing pulses is reduced by additional readout gradients while keeping the number of acquired echoes per excitation constant. The number of refocusing pulses and thus SAR is reduced by the additional readout gradients compared to conventional TSE sequences. Furthermore, the radial readout allows for the reconstruction of different T2-weighted images from one measurement.
