2D multi-slice, multi-shot Cartesian TSE sequence is frequently used for routine MRI but it is sensitive to motion. We evaluated the feasibility of golden angle shot reordering for 2D-multi-shot TSE with 60 patients. Golden angle shot reordering reduced effectively ghost artifacts by randomly filling in each segment of Cartesian k-space. We demonstrated that golden angle shot reordering intrinsically has a motion robustness without penalty for image quality and scan time. This technique might be useful for all anatomies in routine clinical examination..
