This investigation outlines the use of continuous table
movement (CTM) during the acquisition of fat-suppressed
T2-weighted single-shot fast spin echo in the abdomen
and pelvis. The results show that the CTM acquisition
mode allows more uniform fat suppression over large z-FOV,
compared to conventional multi-slice, fixed table
approach. CTM also affords reduced acquisition times
when scanning large anatomic coverage.
