In spite of their diagnostic potential, the poor quality of available diffusion-weighted spinal cord images often restricts clinical application to cervical regions, and improved spatial resolution is highly desirable. To address these needs, a novel technique based on the combination of two recently presented reduced field-of-view approaches is proposed, enabling high-resolution acquisition over the entire spinal cord. Field-of-view reduction is achieved by the application of non-coplanar… CONTINUE READING
