This technique was implemented with a SENSE reduction factor of 2 and used for imaging a water phantom and five healthy\ud volunteers. Off-resonance artifacts were notably reduced compared with those of full-FOV EPI sequences. This approach to diffusion tensor MR imaging of the cervical cord is promising for future, more extensive clinical applications
