SS-FSE is a robust method for fast image acquisition in areas where there is significant B0 inhomogeneity. Recent efforts have led to expand the capabilities beyond traditional constraints of SS-FSE meeting the CPMG condition. In this work, we examine the effects of various RF pulse types on the stability of the signal using a quadratic phase modulation as well as propose using a novel DIVERSE pulse.
