The fast (‘Quick’) fat saturation technique (Q-fat sat) [1], which acquires several k-space lines after each Fat-Sat module, is widely used for suppression of signals from fat in MR imaging. In this work, we developed and evaluated a linear flexible reorder scheme for improved fat saturation VIBE imaging. In vivo experiments indicated that this technique markedly improves suppression of fat saturation signals compared with conventional Q-fat saturation imaging. Studies are underway to validate the clinical value of the technique.
