T2 shuffling reduces blurring in 3D Fast Spin Echo (FSE) by incorporating a low rank representation of signal evolution in the forward model. However, extending T2 shuffling to 2D-FSE is challenging due to the limited spatiotemporal incoherence achievable with cartesian sampling. Radial trajectories offer increased incoherence in multiple dimensions in comparison to cartesian acquisitions. We combine golden angle radial sampling with the T2 shuffling forward model to improve image quality in comparison to 2D cartesian T2 shuffling and to reduce streaking artifacts in radial single-shot FSE images. Simulation and phantom experiments illustrate the advantages of radial T2 shuffling.
