In this work, we used a stimulated echo
prepared diffusion 3DUTE sequence to image the posterior cruciate ligament.
Volunteer scans in the knee were performed. We found that stimulated echo based
diffusion weighted 3DUTE MR imaging can be used effectively to achieve useful
b-values in short T2 MSK tissues. This initial proof-of-principle study shows
good quantitative agreement with clinical EPI diffusion sequences.
