Tissue Artifacts Q&A's
- What is a chemical-shift artifact?
- Doesn't the chemical shift between water and fat protons also result in a phase shift between them? If this is so, then why aren't chemical shift artifacts seen in the phase-encode direction also?
- What can you do to eliminate or reduce the chemical shift artifact?
- What is a chemical shift artifact of the second kind?
- What is meant by in-phase vs out-of-phase imaging?
- I've noticed that T1-FLAIR images may show "India ink" outlines. Is this also a chemical shift artifact?
- What are susceptibility artifacts?
