The investigation of time dependent diffusion imaging techniques such as IMPULSED is emerging for clinical research since recently made available on 3T scanners. IMPULSED requires the acquisition of diffusion images at different diffusion times and diffusion weightings. In this study, we proposed to use Multiband to accelerate the data acquisition for IMPULSED and compared the ADC spectrum for two protocols. Our results showed the consistency in ADC calculation for the Multiband accelerated protocol with the result without using Multiband.
