Abdominal T2-weighted imaging is conventionally lengthy, but single shot approaches significantly improve current acquisition times. For single shot fast spin echo (SSFSE), axial imaging speed and sharpness are constrained by limited parallel imaging acceleration. Here, SSFSE technique with wave encoding and variable-density sampling (wSSFSE) was developed to enable higher accelerations and improve overall image quality. The purpose of this study is to assess image quality, delineation of anatomical structures, lesion conspicuity, and speed improvements with wSSFSE.
