Investigative Radiology February 2014

Objectives: For T2-weighted abdominal images, homogenous fat suppression (FS) is crucial for diagnosis, but inherent B0/B1 inhomogeneities at 7 T lead to inhomogeneous FS and to tissue signal loss for most techniques. Here, 4 different FS techniques for single-shot fast spin echo were compared, whereby the recently proposed time-interleaved acquisition of modes (TIAMO) was used for the imaging portion of the sequence to reduce B1 artifacts. [...]
