When using simultaneous multi-slice (SMS) EPI for background suppressed (BGS) arterial spin labeling (ASL), correction of through-plane motion could introduce artefacts, because the slices with most effective BGS are adjacent to slices with the least BGS. In this study, a new framework is presented to correct for such artefacts.
