Ultrashort echo time (UTE) MRI has the potential to image all structures in the eye, including the sclera, cornea and lens that have relatively short T2* relaxation times. UTE MRI was used for motion-robust imaging of the eye in vivo, and multiple TE measurements were combined for 3D T2* mapping. We report measurements of in vivo T2* relaxation times in the range of several ms that suggest that UTE MRI can be used effectively to study ocular structures with short T2* in vivo.
