Recently methods for imaging at ultra short TEs (UTE) have been investigated and show it is possible to detect in-vivo some of these MR invisible components. We are investigating the use of single point imaging (SPI) techniques for in-vivo UTE imaging at high magnetic fields and have developed a novel version of SPRITE in order to image preclinical disease models. The method, called Diagonal-SPRITE. In-vivo UTE MR images of murine models of brain, lungs and liver are presented.
