In this study, the use use of reduced FOV CUBE is studied in comparison to full FOV CUBE as well as other common techniques. It was seen that CUBE sequences provide robust and superior image details and black blood effects, due to the advantageous 3D FSE acquisition. With only 1/4 of the FOV acquired, reduced FOV CUBE may complete the scan using half of the scan time (using twice Nex) while obtaining highly consistent results as FF CUBE. Reduced FOV CUBE may also reduce the motion related artifacts that may affect the homogeneity of the lumen area.
