Readout-segmented echo planar imaging (RESOLVE) has demonstrated its high diagnostic performance in breast with sharper Images, better lesion-background contrast and higher spatial resolution. However, long scan time (multi-shot strategy) may significantly decrease its clinical application due to possible motion artifacts and limitation of more complex diffusion approaches. Simultaneous multi-slice (SMS) technique allows for rapid realization of breast MR imaging, which may serve as a superior alternative for the diagnosis of breast lesions. In study , SMS was implemented into DWI to reduce the scan time by factor of 2-4, while maintaining the same anatomic coverage and basic image quality.
