We present a 3D SPACE-DIXON technique with improved fat suppression performance for musculoskeletal 3D SPACE MRI. Phantom experiments were used to evaluate the fat suppression efficiency. Preliminary in vivo results indicate the clinical utility of this technique for proton density-weighted 3D MRI.
