Reliable fat suppression is challenging but mandatory for clinical 7.0T imaging. Purpose of this study was to evaluate different fat suppression techniques for clinical 7.0T knee MRI. Eight volunteers were imaged at 7.0T (Achieva, Philips) using a dedicated 28-channel TX-knee coil (QED) and axial PDw-TSE sequences without fat suppression, with SPIR, with SPAIR, with SSGR and with the combination of SSGR+SPIR.
