A new UTE sequence is demonstrated by a combination of short RF pulse for excitation and 3D data acquisition scheme that rotates the 2D spiral trajectory. The image quality from this method was evaluated and its capabilities for imaging the fast relaxation T2 relaxation materials were demonstrated.
