The purpose is to implement high resolution black blood T2-weighted TSE liver imaging in order to facilitate focal liver lesion detection and characterization. DANTE black blood preparation module, T2 weighted Multivane XD multi-slice acquisition and respiratory trigger were combined together. 8 healthy volunteers underwent MRI scanning on 3T Ingenia MR Syste. The black blood T2-weighted sequence showed high image quality and no artifacts. Hepatic veins, portal vein and their main branches were all suppressed successfully. No significant difference was shown in the SNR between black blood and routine T2-weighted images. In conclusion, the black blood T2-weighted imaging could provide robust and good imaging quality.
