Chemical shift-encoded (CSE) MRI can be used to simultaneously obtain multi-parametric maps, including R2*, proton density fat fraction (PDFF), and tissue susceptibility, to aid in the diagnosis of diffuse liver disease. However, the presence of fat in tissue can confound both R2* and B0 field estimation and consequently quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM). To validate this multi-parametric mapping, comparison of quantitative maps to phantoms with known iron concentrations were performed. This work demonstrated the feasibility of accurate PDFF mapping, and R2* and susceptibility measurements that are linearly dependent on both iron and fat concentration.
