Multiband (MB) technique is combined with multitasking for increased spatial coverage of the heart without prolonging scan time. Two different MB multitasking implementations were developed and compared with the conventional multitasking technique on volunteers and phantoms. Both methods demonstrated similar capabilities in solving multiple ‘tasks’ when compared with the reference method and exhibited good agreement in T1 mapping values. MB multitasking is a promising technique for cardiac MR.
