Qualitative and quantitative ultrashort echo time (UTE) imaging of cortical bone.
We describe the use of two-dimensional ultrashort echo time (2D UTE) sequences with minimum TEs of 8 μs to image and quantify cortical bone on a clinical 3T scanner. An adiabatic inversion pulse wasExpand

Short T2 contrast with three-dimensional ultrashort echo time imaging.
There is increasing interest in imaging short T2 species which show little or no signal with conventional magnetic resonance (MR) pulse sequences. In this paper, we describe the use ofExpand

Ultrashort echo time (UTE) imaging with bi-component analysis: bound and free water evaluation of bovine cortical bone subject to sequential drying.
Recent proton magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopy studies have shown that cortical bone exists as different components which have distinct transverse relaxation times (T2s). However, cortical boneExpand

Bone quantitative susceptibility mapping using a chemical species–specific R2* signal model with ultrashort and conventional echo data
To develop quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) of bone using an ultrashort echo time (UTE) gradient echo (GRE) sequence for signal acquisition and a bone‐specific effective transverseExpand

Age-associated differences in triceps surae muscle composition and strength – an MRI-based cross-sectional comparison of contractile, adipose and connective tissue
BackgroundIn human skeletal muscles, the aging process causes a decrease of contractile and a concomitant increase of intramuscular adipose (IMAT) and connective (IMCT) tissues. The accumulation ofExpand

Ultrashort echo time MR imaging of osteochondral junction of the knee at 3 T: identification of anatomic structures contributing to signal intensity.
PURPOSE To image cartilage-bone interfaces in naturally occurring and experimentally prepared human cartilage-bone specimens at 3 T by using ultrashort echo time (TE) (UTE) and conventional pulseExpand

Ultrashort echo time spectroscopic imaging (UTESI): an efficient method for quantifying bound and free water
Biological tissues usually contain distinct water compartments with different transverse relaxation times. In this study, two‐dimensional, multi‐slice, ultrashort echo time spectroscopic imagingExpand

Assessment of cortical bone with clinical and ultrashort echo time sequences
We describe the use of ultrashort echo time (UTE) sequences and fast spin echo sequences to assess cortical bone using a clinical 3T scanner. Regular two‐ and three‐dimensional UTE sequences wereExpand

Quantitative ultrashort echo time (UTE) MRI of human cortical bone: Correlation with porosity and biomechanical properties
In this study we describe the use of ultrashort echo time (UTE) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to evaluate short and long T2* components as well as the water content of cortical bone. FourteenExpand
