T2-shuffling is a recently proposed approach that can reconstruct multiple, sharp T2-weighted images from a single fast spin-echo (FSE) scan. Wave-CAIPI is a parallel imaging technique that uses additional sinusoidal gradients to spread aliasing in the readout direction, to take full advantage of coil-sensitivity information in highly accelerated rectilinear acquisitions. In this work, we augment T2-shuffling with wave-encoding and examine the ability of this combined approach in accelerating FSE acquisition that can achieve multiple T2-weighted images reconstruction. We demonstrate the efficacy of our technique through a 2D simulation, where wave-encoding was shown to provide good reconstruction at 2-3x higher accelerations.
