Recently, ultrafast fMRI sequences significantly increase the temporal resolution of whole brain fMRI but they decrease the spatial signal-to-noise ratio. The aim of this study was to investigate the benefit of ultrafast acquisitions to be used to substantially shorten the total acquisition time. This study showed that ultrafast fMRI sequence can be useful to decrease the acquisition timing without loss of information. The reduced scan time could help the clinical acceptance of resting-state fMRI protocols.
