Patient results. Top: Patient example images comparing VCI, VARPRO and DIR-TSE. Fat suppression in the DIR-TSE is done using a SPAIR pulse (Spectrally Attenuated Inversion Recovery). The VCI provides clear contrast between the RV-myocardium and pericardial fat, while the entire interface is not clearly delineated on the VARPRO and DIR-TSE fat suppressed images. Bottom - Comparison of the visual and quantitative scores in patients. The VCI allows an average of 94% of the interface to be seen, and has the lowest fat-myocardium ratio. Note that smaller fat-myocardium ratios signify improved fat suppression.
