Obesity is currently one of the most relevant health problems and analyzing body-fat-distribution is of great importance in obesity research. Using radial encoded spoiled FLASH, data sets covering the entire abdomen of mice were obtained at 3 different echo times without any gaiting technique. Fat and water signals were separated using the three-point Dixon method and using IDEAL in comparison. Based on this, the visceral and subcutaneous fat compartments were successfully segmented.
