Acquiring three-dimensional (3D) images in MRI is a time consuming process. The overall duration of acquiring a Nyquist sampled 3D dataset can be significantly shortened by enhancing the efficiency of $$$k$$$-space sampling. This can be achieved by accelerating each $$$k$$$-space read-out and by additionally increasing the coverage of $$$k$$$-space for every trajectory interleave.

In this work, we present a 3D $$$k$$$-space trajectory that is highly accelerated in terms of $$$k$$$-space velocity that leads to a low-discrepant coverage of suchlike using a considerably reduced number of read-outs.
