Acquisition by Sequential Excitation and Refocusing) sequence acquires all the
echoes with same TE by using two refocusing pulses , whereas other spatiotemporal-encoding(SPEN)
techniques using a single-refocusing pulse offers a shorter effective TE than
RASER but with varying TE, thereby causing signal variation in the SPEN
dimension . Here, we propose an effective way of overcoming this problem of
TE variation in single-refocusing SPEN imaging.
