DTI can provide valuable structural information that may become an innovative tool in evaluating lumbosacral plexus nerve entrapment. Multiband SENSE technique could be used to accelerate the image acquisition .The present study aims to explore the feasibility of DTI with multiband SENSE on normal lumbosacral plexus nerve. The study showed that MB SENSE=2 was recommended for DTI on normal lumbosacral plexus nerve, which facilitated a 32% shorter image acquisition time than conventional SENSE accelerated diffusion tensor imaging.
