Simultaneously multi-slice (SMS) has been a powerful tool for single-shot EPI DWI acceleration, but still not well established for interleaved EPI (iEPI) DWI acceleration. The main challenge is how to effectively combine slice un-folding and inter-shot phase correction. In this study, a 3D k-space reconstruction method for navigated SMS accelerated iEPI DWI has been proposed. An optimized acquisition for navigator is designed. Then slice un-folding and inter-shot phase correction are performed in a SMS 3D k-space. The performance is compared with ssEPI and un-accelerated iEPI DWI, and has been shown to be applicable for both 4-sh and 8-sh iEPI DWI.
