Fat-suppressed MR images of both hands obtained using CHESS can be improved by rice pads
European Journal of Radiology, 08/20/2012
Moriya S et al. – Lingering fat signals disappeared almost completely in images of both hands using chemical shift selective with rice pads, and it was confirmed that the images were improved and had good fat suppression. More accurate evaluation of inflammatory sites that occur in rheumatoid arthritis may thus be possible, promising better diagnostic accuracy.
