  • OBJECTIVE In a clinical setting, lipoma can sometime show low signal intensity on susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI) mimicking hemorrhage. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the fat-water interface chemical-shift artifacts between SWI and T2*-weighted imaging with a phantom study and evaluate SWI in lipoma cases. MATERIALS AND METHODS SWI, magnitude, high-pass filtered phase, and T2*-weighted imaging of a lard-water phantom were evaluated in the in-phase, out-of phase, and standard… CONTINUE READING
