Aim of this study was to reduce fat signal without using fat saturation pulse. This task was achieved by modification of RF pulse in SE sequence. Different bandwidth of the refocusing pulse allows suppression of fat signal without increased SAR in high resolution SE imaging. The reduced fat signal with longer refocusing pulse duration is evident from in-vivo experiments.
