Statement of Purpose/Need:
This activity will define and demonstrate the two-point mDixon TSE imaging technique to more robustly separate water and fat signals in pediatric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Its application allows faster time-efficient scanning, large field-of-view (FOV), allows fat-free imaging in challenging areas such as head, neck or spine, and provides four contrasts in one scan.

Learning Objectives:
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the basic principles of mDixon techniques
  • Identify the differences between mDixon and other traditional methods of fat suppression
  • Demonstrate clinical examples of improved image quality and diagnostic added value of mDixon images compared to standard fat suppression images
