Fat saturation and STIR

Post by afshin » Thu May 29, 2014 1:09 am

Hi. Today I had a patient with a soft tissue lesion. The lesion was bright signal on T1W,T2W and T1 fat sat but low signal on STIR. My question: What T1 hyperintense lesion can be suppressed by STIR but not by T1 fat sat?

Thank you.

One which lies in a region of poor B0 homogeneity.

There may be a clinical explanation too, but I do not know it.
