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.
