The amount and distribution of adipose tissue are important risk factors for different diseases. We present here a novel method with intrinsic water suppression (water-suppressed transition into driven equilibrium [TIDE]) and its application to healthy volunteers for fat volume and distribution evaluations. Water-suppressed TIDE revealed high image quality without artifacts, high signal-to-noise ratio of fat, and excellent suppression of water tissues, with an acquisition time of approximately 0.6 s/slice. Water-suppressed TIDE is a powerful tool for simple quantification of adipose tissue.
