Three points Dixon method for water and fat separation based on TSE BLADE is proposed. New phase correction using the in-phase image blades is introduced for the reconstruction of the two out-of-phase images in order to keep the water fat chemical shift information so that the water and fat can be separated after the reconstruction. Result shows that water and fat can be separated correctly, furthermore, the method enjoys the advantage of blade, it's less vulnerable to rigid body motion and pulsation etc.
