Abstract

A method for providing a chemical shift image of a windowed chemical slice using high resolution magnetic resonance is provided. The reconstructed image is localized by windowing in the polar coordinate radial dimension (desired amplitude for all angles), and the method for accomplishing the same generally comprises (with a coherent detector tuned so that the proton peak for fat is set to zero):
