Application of low power, low bandwidth rf-pulses in slice selective sequences at high field strength may lead to severe through-plane chemical shift artifacts of fat signal. The presented methods uses a fat/water separating DIXON turbo spin echo sequence to generate through-plane chem. shift corrected images.
