We compared different center-out 3D radial trajectories (ZTE and UTE) and assessed their advantages and disadvantages for bone imaging. We found that while ZTE and UTE show similar results at the same read BW, the higher BWs available with UTE can help reduce undesired background signals in the final bone images.
