In this study we aimed to develop a comprehensive quantitative UTE imaging package including UTE-Cones actual flip angle imaging (UTE-Cones-AFI) for accurate B1 mapping, UTE-Cones variable flip angle (UTE-Cones-VFA) for T1 mapping, 3D UTE-Cones-MT for MT modeling, UTE-Cones-AdiabT1rho for T1r mapping, and multi-echo UTE-Cones for T2* mapping. The techniques were evaluated on cadaveric human knee joints.
