PURPOSE To investigate the exploitation of the self-gating signal in ultrashort echo time (UTE) two-dimensional (2D) acquisitions of freely breathing rats to reconstruct multiple respiratory stages. METHODS Twelve rats were investigated with a 2D golden angle UTE protocol (12 coronal slices, echo time 0.343 ms, repetition time 120 ms, thickness 1 mm, flip… CONTINUE READING
