In this study, an optimized slice acquisition ordering method was proposed to improve the signal attenuation and contrast alteration caused by the crosstalk and MT effect in multi-slice HASTE imaging using a short TR. It demonstrated that a shorter acquisition time is possible with an optimized slice acquisition order. It allows a shorter TR, whilst maintaining the SNR and contrast similar to the conventional one, which is particularly useful in the abdominal imaging.
