Multiband (MB) echo planar MR imaging (EPI) excites and refocuses multiple slice locations simultaneously using MB radiofrequency excitation and refocusing pulses that are subsequently un-aliased by exploiting differences in coil sensitivities. In this study, we investigated the feasibility of using MB diffusion tensor (DT) EPI with a multiband factor of 1, 2, and 3 to interrogate the ulnar nerve at different locations in the arm.
