We propose a new ultrafast multi-slice spatiotemporally encoded (SPEN) MRI technique, termed SeMSPEN, which outmatches conventional multi-slice EPI in its capability in shortening sampling time by producing multiple images in single echo train, and in lowering the specific absorption rate by segmenting the slice-selective dimension. The feasibility of this new method is verified theoretically and experimentally.
