We present our initial experience with the use of a modified 3-point Dixon technique to obtain reliable fast spin-echo T1- and T2-weighted fat-suppressed images in the soft-tissue neck. The method has less sensitivity to magnetic field inhomogeneity than frequency-selective radiofrequency fat saturation and provides uniform fat suppression even near tissue-tissue and air-tissue interfaces. Clinical advantages and limitations of the method are discussed and several examples are shown.
