Fat suppression can be achieved in a variety of ways, including using water-only excitation or using a Dixon method. Each of these methods exhibits strengths and limitations. In this work, we evaluated the characteristics of water excitation compared to a 2-point Dixon fat suppression method used in high spatiotemporal resolution DCE breast MRI.
