Morphological MR imaging of the articular cartilage of the knee at 3 T—comparison of standard and novel 3D sequences


OBJECTIVES This study sought to compare various 3D cartilage sequences and to evaluate the usefulness of ultrashort TE (UTE) imaging, a new technique to isolate signal from the osteochondral junction. METHODS Twenty knees were examined at 3 T with 3D spoiled GRE (FLASH), double-echo steady-state (DESS), balanced SSFP, 3D turbo spin-echo (TSE), and a… (More)
