To achieve dynamic water/fat separation even in the presence of rapid physiological motions and large magnetic field inhomogeneities, this work presents a multi-echo multi-spoke radial FLASH sequence and a model-based non-linear inverse reconstruction. Asymmetric echoes are integrated into the sequence to shorten echo times. A spatial-smoothness constraint on field inhomogeneity maps is developed to counteract local minima in the non-convex inverse problem.
