The coexistence of fat and water in the human body causes difficulties in obtaining accurate images using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). This study evaluated the usefulness of the spectral pre-saturation inversion recovery (SPIR) and short TI inversion recovery (STIR) pulse sequences in suppressing fat. MRI of a water-oil phantom was performed using an Ingenia 3.0-T scanner (Philips Medical Systems, Best, The Netherlands). For quantitative evaluation of the images, the plot profile, signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), and contrast-to-noise ratio (CNR) were measured and compared using ImageJ program (NIH, Bethesda, MD, USA). The SNR for water was higher by 56.04 % on STIR (403.59) than on SPIR (258.64). The SNR for fat was higher by 52.10 % on STIR (17.34) than on SPIR (11.40). The CNR was higher by 24.87 % on STIR (308.75) than on SPIR (247.24). Compared to SPIR, the STIR pulse sequence showed a better fat clearing effect. Therefore, it is necessary to select the appropriate fat suppression method according to the clinical necessity. #Chemical shift #CNR #Fat suppression #MRI #Phantom #SNR #SPIR #STIR
