Uniform Fat Suppression for Challenging Clinical Situations

Dixon technique for uniform fat suppression over a large FOV and in the presence of metallic implants. FatSep is a multi echo gradient echo or fast spin echo sequence with one echo acquired when fat and water signals are in phase and the other when they are opposed. These are subtracted or added to create fat and water only images. FatSep is used throughout the body, and provides a viable fat suppression technique for imaging near metal prostheses.
