a) Typical T2-prepared patient images obtained with the three modules. Note the excellent suppression of pericardial fat by T2PFS and SPAIRT2P, see white arrows. Signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) was measured in fat (red dashed ROIs), myocardium (green dotted ROI), and LV cavity (yellow dashed ROI). Typical sequence parameters were trigger pulse 2, fov 360 x 270 mm, matrix 256 x 125, segments 21, flip angle 15°, receiver bandwidth 399 Hz/pixel, TE 1.66 ms, TR 4.4 ms, slice thickness 6 mm. b) Table lists SNR mean and SNR standard error of the mean measured in 11 patients for the three modules in the indicated ROIs. *: statistically different from T2PWO (p < 0.001). #: statistically identical to T2PWO (p > 0.05).
