In musculoskeletal MR imaging, fat suppression is an important factor that contributes to the visibility of bone-marrow lesions and soft-tissue masses, improves the contrast-to-noise ratio in magnetic resonance (MR) arthrography, and prevents chemical shift artifacts. In this study, a technique based on two off-resonance RF pulses is proposed as a fat suppression method that is less dependent on the field homogeneity.
