Simultaneous multi-slice (SMS) acquisition is a different option for accelerating 2D TSE MRI through the excitation of multiple slices simultaneously and is associated with much smaller SNR loss than parallel acceleration. In this study, we applied both parallel imaging and multiple slices simultaneous imaging technique to accelerate T2WI TSE of female pelvis MRI. Comparing to conventional TSE sequence, 25% of time could be reduced with more slices with thinner thickness using SMS acceleration with similar performances at 3T. SMS-PI-TSE is a feasible acceleration technique in Pelvis MRI.
