  • Patent number: 10809333
    Abstract: An MRI pulse sequence is disclosed. The pulse sequence involves a plurality of slice selective pulses which each individually have a desired rotation that is less than or equal to the total desired rotation. The slice selective pulses each cause a rotation about respective axes, which may be different to each other. Optionally phase correction (re-phasing) gradients can also be included in the pulse sequence.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 10564240
    Abstract: An MRI pulse sequence is disclosed. The pulse sequence involves a plurality of slice selective pulses (51,55) which each individually have a desired rotation that is less than or equal to the total desired rotation. The slice selective pulses each cause a rotation about respective axes, which may be different to each other. Optionally phase correction (re-phasing) gradients (53, 56) can also be included in the pulse sequence.
