Our study demonstrates the utility of multiband slice accelerated TSE for improving slice resolution (2.5 mm vs 3 mm) of clinical knee imaging at 3T with no time penalty. Multiband slice acceleration improves the acquisition efficiency of TSE, allowing more number of thinner slices to be covered per TR.
