In musculoskeletal MR imaging, fat suppression is an
important factor that contributes to the visibility of
bone-marrow lesions and soft-tissue masses, improves the
contrast-to-noise ratio in magnetic resonance (MR)
arthrography, and prevents chemical shift artifacts. In
this study, a technique based on two off-resonance RF
pulses is proposed as a fat suppression method that is
less dependent on the field homogeneity.
