Increased acquisition efficiency has been achieved by exciting several slices simultaneously. The mixed data were unfolded to produce separate slices using the spatial encoding information inherent in a multicoil receiver system. Each coil yields a linear combination of signals from all excited slices weighted by the sensitivity of each coil. A matrix inversion provides a solution to unfold these images.
