We used free breathing Dixon vibe protocol on a Siemens 3T Skyra scanner to study abdominal fat and MRS to study liver fat of 7-9 year old children born from mothers with gestational diabetes. We obtained clear and processable images and spectra. Intra-abdominal fat percentage showed good correlation with liver MRS. Total abdominal fat determined by MRI showed good correlation with DEXA scan. Free breathing protocols are suitable to study children.
