3D radial-based methods have become established in recent years for
ultrashort-echo-time (UTE) imaging, these acquisitions are generally slow due
to the inefficiency of radial k-space trajectories. The purpose of this work
was to implement a fast UTE acquisition based on an optimized 3D
stack-of-spirals acquisition and to perform a proof-of-concept evaluation of
the method for bone imaging of the skull and cartilage imaging of the knee.
