In this work we propose the application of a small percentage of fat-saturation (fat-sat) using Spectral Heterogeneity Adaptive RF Pulses (SHARP) to improve the conspicuity of meniscal tears at 3T and 7T. Knee Turbo-spin-echo (TSE) MRI without fat-sat was compared with TSE MRI with a small percentage of fat-sat applied using SHARP to demonstrate the improvement in conspicuity of meniscal tears with SHARP at 3T and 7T.
