  1. Table 1 shows the imaging parameters of WBMRA of the 4 overlapping segments that are shown in Fig.1. Generalized autocalibrating partially parallel acquisition (GRAPPA) in phase encoding direction was used. Scan duration times for a single station were 12 – 17 seconds (time of acquisition, TA).
