Inversion-Recovery UTE sequences have been used to highlight and quantify short-T2 structures. Covering a 3D volume remains time-consuming, and a trade-off often needs to be found between k-space undersampling and acceptable appearing streaking artifacts. As such, acquiring several radial spokes within a single repetition time represents a supplementary sequence acceleration possibility. In this work, we propose to quantify the short-T2 signal difference between a constant and an optimized variable flip angle strategy in a multispoke acquisition module, and within a long-T2 suppression condition in vitro.
