Single-shot fast spin echo is used clinically to provide fast, motion-robust abdominal images. However, signal decay along the echo train results in blurred images. Our previous work on optimal variable flip angle design demonstrated improved SNR on brain imaging. Here, we extend this framework to show simultaneous T2 blurring and contrast control in abdominal imaging with single-shot fast spin echo.
