The objective of this study was to compare two different schemes for long-T 2 component suppression in ultrashort echo-time (UTE) imaging. The aim was to increase conspicuity of short-T 2 components accessible by the UTE technique. A “dual-echo” and a magnetization-preparation approach for long-T 2 and fat suppression were implemented on clinical scanners… CONTINUE READING
