PURPOSE To compare bicomponent ultrashort echo time (UTE) T2* parameters of patellar tendon between healthy volunteers and patients with patellar tendinopathy. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study was performed with Institutional Review Board approval and with all subjects signing informed consent. A UTE- T2* mapping sequence was performed at 3.0T on the knees of 10 healthy volunteers and in 11 patients with patellar tendinopathy. The UTE- T2* relaxation times of the fast relaxing macromolecular… CONTINUE READING
