A PROPELLER sequence with dual bandwidths was developed for T1-weighted fat/water separated imaging. The bandwidth of the second readout was adjusted to remove dead time related to shifted readouts in order to improve SNR efficiency. Before PROPELLER reconstruction, bladewise fat/water separation was performed in k-space to remove chemical shift displacement artifacts. This enabled low bandwidth acquisitions without smearing of the fat signal, which further improved SNR efficiency. Strong fat suppression insensitive to B0 inhomogeneity was demonstrated in imaging of the neck and orbits.
