MR for Quantitative Fat Imaging

Peterson, Pernilla LU and Månsson, Sven LU (2011) 9th International Conference on Medical Physics In Medical Physics in the Baltic States p.19-22
Abstract
An absolute measure of the fat content in various organs is an important part of diagnostics in obesity and diabetes. Fat quantification using MR-imaging is a non-invasive technique which provides both quantitative and spatial information on fat accumulation. However, for absolute quantification, it is necessary to address the various sources of contrast in MR-imaging. This paper summarizes basic MR fat quantification techniques and discusses the main parameters affecting absolute fat quantification.
