Evaluation of a Modified Stejskal-Tanner Pulsing Scheme for DWI Allowing a Marked Reduction in Echo Time at 3 T

To evaluate a modified Stejskal-Tanner diffusion gradient pulsing scheme that achieves a markedly shorter TE, by applying diffusion encoding during the entire time between the two requisite radiofrequency pulses, with respect to SNR, overall diagnostic image quality, bulk susceptibility artifact, and resulting spatial distortions (which were quantified).
