Synthetic MRI enables reconstruction of multiple MRI contrasts from a single scan based on voxel-wise computation of relaxation parameters. This can improvement scan productivity and workflow considerably. The utility of synthetic MRI has recently been demonstrated in clinical settings. However in its current implementation whole brain coverage can be achieved within 5 minutes only if a thick slice prescription (~ 4mm) is used, but this might provide insufficient through-plane resolution for certain clinical protocols and can also lead to partial voluming effects. This work explores the simultaneous multislice approach for more efficient through plane coverage with synthetic MRI.
