SPatiotemporal ENcoding (SPEN) provides single-shot 2D images free from T2* effects, and with enhanced robustness to field distortions. SPEN’s acquisition module is relatively short, opening the possibility to combine SPEN with a multi-spin-echo protocol, thus collecting several images in one shot. This work explores this possibility towards two different aims: the single-shot characterization of spatially-resolved T2 maps, and the accelerated acquisition of 3D images incorporating a phase encoding. Both approaches proved successful, as exemplified with real-time T2 mapping of in vivo kidney on a perfused mouse and high resolution volumetric acquisitions on ex vivo phantoms and human volunteers.
