This study’s purpose was to compare single-shot with variable refocusing flip angle (vrfSSFSE) and standard multi-shot Fast Spin Echo (FSE) T1, FLAIR and T2w for pediatric brain evaluation. The resulting data shows in 5 subjects that vrfSSFSE provides clinically-acceptable diagnostic quality with a significant reduction in overall examination scan times and reduced motion/ghosting related artifacts typically observed with standard FSE imaging sequences.
