Inversion recovery (IR) techniques allow the suppression of one particular species (e.g. CSF fluid or fat). However, these techniques have their limitation. A single inversion time (TI) has to be chosen prospectively, resulting in only one contrast per IR experiment. Here, we demonstrate that employing a radial trajectory in combination with a conventional radial reconstruction allows the reconstruction of several images with different tissue types cancelled out of one singleshot dataset. Thus, no fixed TI is necessary and the desired contrasts can be chosen retrospectively, what makes this technique a promising candidate for clinical practice.
