Conventional MT modeling can only be applied to long T2 tissues since short T2 tissues such as cortical bone show little or no signal with clinical sequences. Ultrashort echo time magnetization transfer (UTE-MT) imaging is likely to help with this difficulty. In this study we aimed to develop and utilize UTE-MT imaging and compare two-pool with three-pool modeling of bovine cortical bone samples using a clinical 3T scanner.
