We proposed an iterative reconstruction method which was effective and valid in reducing artifacts in dual-band EPI in animal scanners. This iterative reconstruction method could accurately separate collapsed k-space data acquired simultaneously from multiple slice locations. Our findings give rise to a more efficient multi-band EPI technique that can be used even with a scanner system equipped with relatively few receiver coil elements.
