The Single-frequency Excitation Wideband MRI (SE-WMRI) technique was implemented on a Siemens PRISMA 3T human MRI system to demonstrate its multifaceted benefits for human brain imaging, including acceleration, SNR improvement, and spatial resolution enhancement. The accelerated Wideband brain results showed high consistency with standard scans, and the resolution enhanced Wideband images revealed more detailed brain structures details and clearer blood vessel due to reduced partial volume effect. Since SE-WMRI can enhance MR efficiency without any hardware upgrade, it’s highly cost-effective for medical institutions in pursuit of higher MR imaging quality.
