The advent of slice accelerated imaging has allowed the significant speedup of diffusion tensor imaging. Slice accelerated imaging excels at accelerating imaging which has a relatively long repetition time, such as readout segmented imaging, which is inherently a dual-echo imaging technique and typically has a repetition time of over 100ms. This work demonstrates that the image quality of diffusion tensor readout segmented imaging is comparable to non-slice accelerated imaging, despite the acquisition being at least 2 times faster.
