We demonstrate the feasibility of combining simultaneous multi-slice (SMS) excitation with in-plane acceleration to achieve highly accelerated MR elastography data acquisition. The proposed approach enables the acquisition of diagnostic liver MRE data in a single breath-hold, which was not possible using the previous approaches. Our results indicate excellent agreement between the data acquired with and without SMS.
