Newly developed mFFE sequence can provide consistent fat fraction regardless of T2* or T1 alteration of the liver tissue, as compared to conventional duel-echo FFE. This may be applicable to evaluation of the fatty liver in CHC or NASH patients, or even for patients after SPIO or Gd-EOB-DTPA administration.
