We propose to acquire the different components in the steady state signal by interleaving. Using DESS as an example, we show that through appropriate gradient design, the two major components (S+ and S-) in the SSFP signal can be separately acquired in alternate TR and form images similar to those conventionally acquired by DESS. The new technique shortens TR and reduces motion and diffusion sensitivity.
