Gadolinium Enhancement (LGE) with fat suppression typically leaves traces of
fat signal in the image. The goal of the present work is to completely remove
fat signal from the LGE image and to visualize fat separately. The PiSCES
method applies phase sensitive image reconstruction and customized timing of
fat-selective RF pulses. In 19 out of 22 patient examinations PiSCES better removed
fat compared to conventional magnitude fat-suppressed LGE.
