Competing Interests

Authors of this work, David Feinberg and Sudhir Ramanna, are employees of Advanced MRI Technologies, which is engaged in the development of magnetic resonance imaging pulse sequences. Some of the innovation and design of the pulse sequence presented in this work was done by Advanced MRI Technologies. This work was jointly developed with researchers at the University of Minnesota and Oxford University. However, this does not alter the authors' adherence to all the PLoS ONE policies on sharing data and materials, as detailed online in the guide for authors.
