Sideband artifacts is the major obstacle to 1H MRSI without water suppression. To remove the sideband artefacts, several reference-based methods have been proposed, in which the reference signals are acquired from a water phantom with identical experimental parameters as those of in vivo scan are acquired. The reference-based methods do not suffer scan time penalty and they are compatible with any accelerated sequences such as SENSE-SI. The aim of the present work is to improve and compare the performance of two kinds of reference-based methods, namely, the phase compensation method and the artifact subtraction method.
