Various orders of binomial spatial modulation of magnetization sequences up to (1 4 6 4 1) have been tested to find the optimum sequence for clinical application. Stripe width, stripe sharpness and the tolerance of the sequences to radiofrequency non-linearity have been investigated. The (1 3 3 1) sequence was found to be a good compromise between competing design criteria, and its application to viewing pulsatile cerebrospinal fluid motion is described.
