A combination of frequency selective excitation and saturation is used to separated water and fat components in magnetic resonance imaging. In conjunction with a gradient echo sequence (fast low angle) shot and a three-dimensional data acquisition, a large volume of the body can be covered. A set of 32 water or fat images can be obtained within 3.5 min(More)
In this paper the signal intensity and parameter-weighting zones of spin echo and gradient echo sequences (FLASH) have been analysed. Using information available in the literature, with additional analytical and numerical techniques, it is possible to determine parameters which maximise tissue contrast for T1, T2 and proton-weighted images. The technique is(More)
