In DENSE, displacement-encoded stimulated echoes are acquired with an artifact-generating signal due to T1 relaxation. Phase-cycling acquisitions are generally used to suppress the artifact-generating echoes which can result in imperfect artifact suppression when there is motion between the two acquisitions. To avoid this problem, a generative adversarial convolutional neural network (DAS-Net) is proposed to suppress the artifacts from a single acquisition. DAS-Net was trained on a DENSE dataset acquired from healthy volunteers. Results show that DAS-Net can effectively suppress the artifact-generating echoes and has the potential to obviate the need for phase-cycling acquisitions
