Tendon is a highly ordered collagen-rich fibril tissue links muscle to bone. Multiple water components with distinct MR relaxation times exist in the tendon. In this study, we aimed to study the multiple water components in the Achilles tendon, and investigate its MTR as a function of MT pulse frequency offset in healthy volunteers and patients with tendon rupture using a clinical 3T scanner
