RACETE is a novel method for positive contrast imaging of chemical exchange. In this work the RACETE sequence is extended to allow steady state imaging by interleaving the preparation with small flip angle RACETE read-outs. It can be shown that the efficiency of the steady state RACETE is improved over the equilibrium RACETE. This is an important step towards speeding up the acquisition process to make RACETE a viable option for future in vivo experiments.
