Having access to a wide variety of information improves a physicians ability to differentially diagnose complex disease. In this work, we demonstrate that a simple modification to a standard MR elastography (MRE) protocol enables simultaneous stiffness and fat+water estimation from a single data set, which may offer improved image SNR and mitigation of motion misregistration. After describing the MRE sequence modification and image reconstruction pipeline, we present experimental results that demonstrate this new capability.
