Multi-shot diffusion weighted (MS-DW) imaging can offer reduced echo-time (TE) and improved SNR to enable high spatial resolution applications. However, the reconstruction of the high resolution diffusion weighted images (DWI) from the multiple shots is challenging because of the presence of motion-induced phase variations between shots. Recently, two methods were proposed to reconstruct the phase-compensated DWIs. In this work, we compare the performance of the methods, MUSE and MUSSELS, to reconstruct the DWIs from a MS-DW acquisition.
