A T1w TSE Dixon acquisition is combined with view angle tilting (VAT) in order to reduce susceptibility induced
artifacts from orthopedic implants close to the prostate and at the same time
improve fat suppression in the area of interest. The comparison with SPIR fat
suppression shows clear improvement when using Dixon together with VAT by
providing more homogeneous and complete fat suppression and reduced susceptibility
artifacts thus allowing clear visualization of T1 based contrast changes in the
prostate and the surrounding tissue. Those results have been proven at 1.5T and
3.0T on healthy volunteers with orthopedic hip implants.
