In this study we developed a sequence for neurography with robust fat and blood suppression for increased conspicuity of nerves. Improved Motion-Sensitized Driven-Equilibrium Preparation (iMSDE) was applied to null blood and lymphatic motions. DIXON TSE readout with long TE was used to generate water images representing nerves, in brachial plexus where other fat suppression pulses were challenged by B0 and B1 complexities. Preliminary test in brachial plexus showed its advantages and stability.
