The IDEAL acquisition can generate a water, fat, in-phase and out-phase data sets for clear tissue differentiation in a single sequence. It offers a great opportunity for imaging the nerve root compression. In this work, we demonstrated the feasibility of IDEAL sequence to image the anatomic structure and the whole contort of the lumbosacral nerve roots as well as the microstructural of lumbosacral nerve on the canals of lumbar spinal nerves is possible.IDEAL imaging on lumbosacral nerve roots can be valuable for clinical diagnosis to estimate the nerve compression, and provide detailed information for the right treatment at early-stage.
