The purpose of this study was to evaluate the use of Simultaneous Multi-slice BLADE technique for artifact reduction and overall image quality improvement of the shoulder. All the patients underwent the conventional TSE and SMS BLADE sequences. The images were graded by two radiologists for image artifacts, overall image quality, and delineation of anatomic structure. The results showed that the new technique can significantly reduce artifacts, shorten scanning time, improve overall image quality, display more detailed anatomical structures and provide better clinical diagnostic images than conventional shoulder joint sequence.
