Ultra-high field whole brain susceptibility mapping at an isotropic resolution of 1 mm was performed within 16 seconds using a 3D planes-on-a-paddlewheel (POP) EPI sequence. The non-Cartesian readout scheme is created by rotating a standard EPI readout train around its own phase encoding axis and provides higher flexibility for echo time minimization than conventional 3D EPI. Morphologic images and susceptibility maps obtained were comparable to those acquired with a conventional 4 minute 3D GRE scan.
