INTRODUCTION Ultrashort echo-time enhanced T2∗ (UTE-T2∗) mapping of articular cartilage is a novel quantitative MRI technique with the potential to visualize deep cartilage characteristics better than standard T2 mapping. The feasibility and intersession repeatability of UTE-T2∗ mapping of cartilage in vivo has not previously been evaluated. METHODS Eleven asymptomatic subjects underwent repeat UTE-T2∗ imaging on a whole-body 3T MRI scanner on three consecutive days. Full-thickness… CONTINUE READING
