Phase contrast MRI (PC-MRI) has been evolved into a practical and widely used technique for quantification of blood flow velocity and volume, which provides useful insights into pathophysiology. However, PC-MRI requires a long acquisition time to build up phase contrast, requiring flow-reference and flow-encoded datasets over multiple heartbeats, and limiting its general use of flow imaging as a clinical routine. To enable higher acceleration rates, in this work we proposed a generalized coil-by-coil approach to simultaneous multislice (SMS) reconstruction in conjunction with inplane acceleration called as bline SMS (b-SMS) by incorporating slice separation and inplane reconstruction into a single optimization framework that is formulated as an inverse problem with data fidelity.
