Fetal diffusion MRI analysis is often limited by the ability of the conventional ssEPI to allow an efficient, high-resolution acquisition, able to produce multi-shell high angular resolution dMRI data as required by advanced analysis tools. This abstract presents a novel, multiband accelerated, sinusoidal, quiet and efficient ssEPI acquisition. The first results on 3 fetuses with 54 directions show promising data quality and significantly decreased scan time.
