A method and system provides an acquisition scheme for generating magnetic resonance elastography displacement data with whole-sample coverage, high spatial resolution, and adequate SNR in a short scan time. The method and system can acquire in-plane and through-plane k-space shots over a volume of a sample divided into a plurality of slabs that each include a plurality of non-adjacent slices to obtain three dimensional multiband, multishot data, can apply multiband radio frequency refocusing pulses to the sample, can acquire navigators before readout, and can correct for non-linear motion errors.
