chemical shift artifacts

artifacts in magnetic resonance caused by small differences in resonance frequencies of different chemical compounds (e.g., water and fat).

Chemical shift artifacts of the second kind are also known as "India ink" or phase cancellation artifacts and relate to the cancellation of signal in voxels containing both water and fat protons at TEs where fat and water protons are out-of-phase relative to each other.
Chemical shift artifacts, as well as magnetic and RF field inhomogeneities, are also important considerations at 3T.
The Stand-Up(TM) MRI demonstrated a low claustrophobic potential and yielded relatively high-resolution images with little motion, magnetic susceptibility, or chemical shift artifacts.
This is because there are less motion and chemical shift artifacts on the images acquired at 0.
