The purpose of this study is to assess a potential fat quantitative technique in Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), one of High-Speed T2-corrected multi echo (HISTO) acquisition with multi echo MRS, which is a rapid way in quantifying fatty content of pelvic and thigh muscles with confound effect, and then a rapid multi echo 3D Dixon technique was performed with multi peak fitted and R2* correction method to further evaluated the un-confounded fat fraction and the region of fat content in muscles. Proposed protocol was used to quantify the accuracy of fat fraction in DMD patients; both of measurements demonstrate strong consistency in fat quantification.
