We used respiratory triggered MultiBand SENSE (MB-SENSE) DWI using variable-rate selective excitation (MB-VERSE). We first measured ADC values of liver and kidney and subsequently performed visual assessment. The MB-VERSE DWI reduced the imaging time while improving the image quality and robustness of ADC values.
