Fat/water separation at low field strengths can be difficult due to the small difference between resonance frequencies. Rosette trajectories have previously been shown to be effective for spectral separation and fat suppression, and the approach is not dependent on a large frequency difference. Here, a rosette trajectory is used to significantly suppress fat signal in water images, and to produce separate fat images at 0.55T. B0 maps are calculated from two of the rosette echoes, and are used to improve the fat/water separation. Initial examples are shown in an oil/water phantom, and in the heart and abdomen.
