A novel fat saturation scheme is proposed which combines spectral fat saturation with a steady-state 3D true Fast Imaging with Steady Precesson (TrueFISP) sequence. Fat saturation consisted of a conventional frequency-selective excitation pulse surrounded by spoiler gradients. This saturation block was periodically repeated within a continuously running TrueFISP sequence. Except for the fat signals, the steady-state signal formation and the resulting image contrast of TrueFISP was not modified… CONTINUE READING
