Magnetization inversion is an important tool in UTE MRI to generate short T2 contrast and selectively eliminate certain long-T2 signals in the image, such as fat or muscle. Volunteer experiments were performed to demonstrate the ability of IR prepared UTE to directly image short T2 tissues such as cortical bone within clinical scantimes.
