PURPOSE To compare different lipid multipeak spectral models to the single-peak model in Dixon-based fat-water separation and to evaluate differences between visually scored magnetic resonance (MR) images and quantitatively assessed fat fractions in muscle of Duchenne muscular dystrophy patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS T1-weighted and 3-point Dixon imaging of the upper and lower leg was performed in 13 Duchenne patients and six healthy controls. Three-, four-, and five-peak lipid spectrum… CONTINUE READING
