Zero TE is an extremely efficient 3D pulse sequence which also has the advantages of low geometrical distortion, reduced acoustic noise and the capacity of imaging short T2 structure. However, its native contrast is proton density. Here we present a novel method that allows gradient refocusing at echo times suitable for fMRI or susceptibility weighted imaging. As a proof of concept, this new imaging strategy is tested in phantom experiments.
