Fat suppression or saturation (FatSat) is widely used in MRI applications, which reduces the fat signal and preserves water signal for clinical diagnosis, enhancing potential pathological changes. Different degree of FatSat yields different image contrast. However, when radiologists read FatSat images, they have different contrast preferences. To provide such variable preferences is not trivial because it typically costs more imaging time to re-acquire another contrast of FatSat image by adjusting imaging parameters. This work presents an alternative approach to provide continuously adjustable image contrast of FatSat images with only one acquisition.
