Respiratory triggering is used widely in clinical work and can produce high image quality and perfect signal-noise ratio compared with free-breathing and breath-hold; however, a disadvantage of respiratory triggering is that its parametric reproducibility is inferior to the latter two methods.
Because of the long scan time required for 3D implementation, respiratory triggering is used to remove respiratory motion artifacts.
The 3D FRFSE- XL is a 3D FSE (Fast Spin Echo) pulse sequence which operate swith the respiratory triggering, ASSET (Arraycoil Spatial Sensitivity Encoding Technique) and facilitates fast recovery.
