Simultaneous Multi-Slice (SMS) is a paradigm shift in MRI – helping cut total MSK exam times by up to 46%3, reducing DWI scan times throughout the body, and significantly improving temporal resolution for BOLD fMRI. SMS has expanded its capabilities, now providing high-resolution, distortion-free DWI with RESOLVE for up to 60% shorter scans. SMS can also be seamlessly combined with to conventional parallel imaging, enabling additional scan time reductions as a factor of slice acceleration.

2Note that scan time reduction is not an exact factor of slice acceleration due to a fast reference scan required for slice separation.
