For tissues with very short T2* values ultrashort echo
time T2* (UTE -T2*) mapping is used instead of
conventional multi echo approach because in the latter
case echo time spacing is too large for the fast signal
decay in rigid bodys. Since a full sampled image is
measured for every TE value UTE-T2* mapping is a very
time consuming approach. Using a contrast manipulating
mixed k-space (COMMIX) approach provides multiple TE
images in a single k-space data set.
