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.
