The subtraction between minimum TE1 (~50-200 s) and
longer TE2 (>~5ms) images was typically performed to
provide a better contrast from the deeper layers of
cartilage. Here, we show that decreasing TE is more
critical to enhance the image contrast of the deeper
layers of articular cartilage rather than minimizing TE1
when the subtraction method is used with UTE imaging.
This was demonstrated by simulation and UTE imaging.
