Fat suppression and motion artifacts are still challenging in clinical MRI for certain body regions. In this work a novel acquisition method combining Dixon’s method and BLADE (or PROPELLER, periodically rotated overlapping parallel lines with enhanced reconstruction) is proposed, to address fat suppression and motion artifacts simultaneously. We show that the proposed technique acquires data efficiently while avoiding the potential misalignment between echoes as well as the phase inconsistency introduced by different readout directions.
