We present results using a Zero Time of Echo sequence ("Silent") with an Adiabatic Fat Suppression Pulse (ASPIR). As well as providing fat suppression that is relatively robust to field inhomogeneities at 7T, ASPIR-Silent also generates images with an additional off-resonant contrast. We show this contrast derives primarily from Magnetisation Transfer effects, and give an in vivo example.
