Images of cortical bone have previously been created by selection of RF pulse parameters giving short-$$$T_2$$$-specificity in excitation for a 3D UTE sequence. The previous demonstration required multiple excitations. Here a composite pulse is described that creates similar contrast for depicting cortical bone with bright signal.
