Simultaneous MR acoustic radiation force imaging and MR thermometry (STARFI) based on coherent echo-shifted sequence (cES) was proposed and comprehensively compared to RF spoiled gradient echo (spGRE). The calculated displacement of cES STARFI was always larger than the value of spGRE STARFI through both the simulation and experiments, while the accuracy of the temperature monitoring of cES was maintained. The temperature and displacement map acquired during HIFU heating were in good accordance with each other. The cES STARFI can be an alternative for comprehensively monitoring of HIFU treatment with increased displacement sensitivity and time efficiency compared to spGRE STARFI.
