Every time the question of – what slice acquisition order was used/what is the slice timing – comes up, I feel like a whole bunch of us spend forever trying to figure it out. What is the way to found out the slice acquisition order when
- the image is not acquired on a Siemens scanner (where the slice timing is stored in the DICOM header)
- we don’t have the DICOM image
- there’s no MR technician who knows to ask
A followup question is – how do you know if you have botched up the slice timing information during slice timing correction, or in general how do you verify incorrect slice timing correction?
