We report on using an inversion recovery prepared
ultrashort TE sequence to directly image the ultrashort
T2 components of white matter in MS. The IR-UTE sequence
shows high contrast between normal and abnormal white
matter. It also shows gray matter lesions and high
signal from deep gray matter nuclei. This may be a
result of iron deposition.
