The application of simultaneous multi-slice imaging to a segmented EPI allows the acquisition of multiple contrasts while retaining sufficient temporal resolution and spatial coverage. Contrast-enhanced perfusion measurements were performed on a pig’s hip/leg resulting in mainly muscle-perfusion images with separated S0 and T2* maps. The separation of the different signal contributions potentially allows for a quantitative analysis in contrast-enhanced dynamic imaging.
