Parallel imaging methods become increasingly available on clinical MR scanners. To investigate the potential of sensitivity-encoded single-shot EPI (SENSE-EPI) for functional MRI, five imaging protocols at different SENSE reduction factors (R) and matrix sizes were compared with respect to their noise characteristics and their sensitivity toward functional activation in a motor task examination. At constant echo times, SENSE-EPI was either used to shorten the single volume acquisition times (TR… CONTINUE READING
