Limitation: Since fat is very high in signal intensity on these sequences, usually fat suppression is required to optimize the contrast between fat and water.
Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrated a high signal intensity of the mass on the T1 and T2 black blood weighted image, with the signal intensity being reduced markedly on the fat suppression technique (Fig.
5T Dedicated Breast MRI System, coupled with a patented fat suppression pulse sequence technology called RODEO(R), Aurora becomes the only commercially available MRI system designed specifically to image the breast.
The 3-dimensional spoiled gradient echo (SPGR) sequence with fat suppression yields higher cartilage signal and spatial resolution and is therefore useful for cartilage thickness and volume measurements.
Multiple hepatorenal angiomyolipomas: Diagnosis with fat suppression, gadolinium-enhanced MRI.
Chemical shift imaging is of special value and encompasses different techniques such as moderate T2W FSE with fat suppression (STIR), in-phase and opposed-phase gradient echo images, and fast multiplanar T1W spoiled gradient echo fat suppressed sequences.
The Aurora system has a proprietary magnet system that makes reliable bilateral fat suppression possible.
Fast imaging with steadystate precession data should be collected without fat suppression, because it not only ensures good visualization of the bowel itself but also of the adjacent mesentery and retroperitoneum.

Hemorrhagic cysts should remain of relatively high signal on T1W images with fat suppression, which helps to differentiate them from dermoid cysts in most situations.
The concomitant use of fat suppression serves to increase the conspicuity of disease processes that are characterized by increased enhancement on interstitial-phase images, including peritoneal metastases, cholangiocarcinoma, ascending cholangitis, inflammatory bowel disease, and abscesses.
We do not recommend spectral fat suppression on most scanners, as failure of fat suppression is a common cause of interpretive error.
