Fast chemical shift imaging of water, fat, acetone and silicone is demonstrated on 1H phantoms with a multiecho balanced SSFP sequence and IDEAL spectral reconstruction. The separation of water, fat and silicone is demonstrated in vivo as well. The method is particularly promising for spectroscopic (hyperpolarized) 13C imaging.
