PURPOSE To improve the performance and flexibility of diffusion-weighted inner field-of-view (FOV) echo-planar imaging (EPI) based on 2D-selective radiofrequency (RF) excitations by 1) using higher gradient amplitudes for outer excitation lines, and 2) tilting the excitation plane such that the unwanted side excitations do not overlap with the current image slice or other slices to be acquired. MATERIALS AND METHODS Acquisitions with a conventional (untilted) and the improved setup were… CONTINUE READING
