The goal of the present work is to show the feasibility of proton resonance frequency (PRF) shift based thermometry using a modified Turbo Spin Echo (modified TSE) sequence.. In this work, we present a modified TSE sequence to generate phase maps, in which the proton resonance frequency shift is detected.Although, the proposed modified TSE sequence is in an early development stage, we have shown that this sequence can be used to monitor temperature and could be used to quantify heating effects in suspect TSE studies.
