Skipped phase encoding and edge deghosting (SPEED) is an effective method for scan time reduction. Previously, three interleaved datasets along PE direction were acquired to separate the overlapped ghosts by solving a least-square problem. This study reveals that overlapped ghosts can be separated by using only two interleaved k-space datasets since the ghost order index (n1, n2) can be readily calculated from central k-space data. Results from phantom and in vivo data demonstrated feasibility of the proposed method, leading to further acceleration of SPEED imaging.
