The 2D-PACE technique has been proved to be superior to conventional respiratory triggering techniques for imaging the abdominal region because it could detect more accurate respiratory waveform, which is already widely used in single shot EPI for high quality abdominal diffusion weighted imaging. The readout-segmented EPI features much shorter echo spacing compared with single shot EPI and consequently enjoys less distortion. In this study, the 2D-PACE technique is integrated into a readout-segmented EPI sequence and makes high resolution abdominal diffusion images with less distortion and image blurring.
