Late Gadolinium Enhancement (LGE) with fat suppression typically leaves traces of fat signal in the image. The goal of the present work is to completely remove fat signal from the LGE image and to visualize fat separately. The PiSCES method applies phase sensitive image reconstruction and customized timing of fat-selective RF pulses. In 19 out of 22 patient examinations PiSCES better removed fat compared to conventional magnitude fat-suppressed LGE.
