At present, traditional fat suppression still brings heavy chemical-shift artifacts in diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) in abdomen 3T magnetic resonance scan. The purpose of this paper is to study the effect of two different DWI sequences for fat suppression on normal pancreas. From the above research, it can be concluded that DWI with LIPO may serve as an more effective method on improving the image quality of pancreas at 3.0T MR.
