Diffusion weighted imaging with EPI can suffer from image distortions due to sensitivity to B0 inhomogeneity and chemical shift related artifacts induced by incomplete fat suppression. In this study, we propose a TSE BLADE sequence with Dixon water-fat separation for DWI. With this technique, distortion-free DWI with robust fat suppression was shown to be feasible, even in body regions with strong B0 inhomogeneity.
