In this work, MRI of the left hand of an embalmed
Egyptian mummy is implemented with UTE, PETRA and SPI
sequences using a home-made Tx/Rx solenoid coil.
Sequences are compared in their performance of SNR and
extraction of anatomical details. Although PETRA has
higher SNR, UTE reveal anatomical details better. SPI
image is sharper yet it requires long scan times.
Performances of the sequences are evaluated and UTE is
found more suitable to MRI of ancient remains.
