3D Cones sequence utilizes a central-out k-space trajectory that does not require field gradients prior to the sampling. As well, the ultra-short TE (<0.1ms) capability of the 3D Cones provides an approach for measurement of ultra-short T2 images. This work presents a preliminary application work of 3D Cones sequence in human brain short T2 imaging.
