The evaluation of hepatic fat by MR techniques is of increasing interest for clinical routine. The purpose of our study was to compare fat quantification of the liver based on 1H spectroscopy and two different imaging based water-fat separation methods. All methods included correction for T2* bias. For clinical purposes a good correlation between the different fat quantification methods was found.
