Water–fat imaging and fat quantification

Research summary

Our technical work on water–fat imaging and fat quantification focuses on the following directions:

  • Development of SNR-efficient multi-echo gradient echo acquisition techniques for water–fat separation.
  • Robust fieldmap estimation in water–fat separation.
  • Removal of confounding effects in PDFF quantification using both imaging- and MRS-based techniques.
  • Development of MRS techniques to measure fat unsaturation.
