PSIF is a good alternative to T2-TSE for its speed and good T2 contrast in abdominal imaging at 3T. We propose to apply fat/water decomposition to PSIF for robust fat suppression in abdominal imaging. In consideration of short TR in PSIF for higher SNR, three images with different TEs are acquired in an interleaved way and the TE increment was chosen as 0.57 ms. The phantom and volunteer shows the fat and water images are successfully derived from the PSIF images with three different TEs. T2 weighted PSIF water images are improved in diagnostic quality with robust fat suppression.
