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.
