Simultaneous Short T2 Excitation and Long T2 Suppression RF Pulses

Abstract

Introduction: Ultrashort echo time (UTE) MRI requires specialized pulse sequences to overcome the short T2 relaxation of the MR signal encountered in tissues such as ligaments, tendon or cortical bone. Imaging short T2 tissues is achieved in UTE by acquiring the Free Induction Decay (FID) of the MR signal as soon after the end of the RF excitation pulse as… (More)
