Abstract

In an embodiment, a phase cycled multiple echo steady state free precession imaging includes combining the use of phase cycling [6] with a multiecho SSFP sequence for fat-water separation and chemical shift imaging. While TR is extended by the acquisition of additional echoes, phase cycling can reduce the associated artifacts, and greater proportion of time is spent acquiring signal between RF excitations relative to the multi-acquisition method.
