Fasciae are related with the tumor invasion. To investigate the alteration of peritumoral fasciae during tumor invasion, a novel dual-bandlong-T2saturation UTE sequence was proposed in this study. This sequence was applied to suppress the signal from long-T2 tissue components, consequently directly providing short-T2 contrast. Tumor-bearing Balb/c mouse was scanned on a 7T MRI scanner with the proposed sequence and standard FLASH to compare the quality of fasciae imaging. The results showed that the long-T2 signal was effectively suppressed and the peritumoral fasciae was visualized with this novel technique. This technique will give potential clinical feasibility of the fascia-related diseases.
