The purpose of the study was to evaluate the clinical applicability of zero echo time (ZTE) MR and compare the image quality between CT and ZTE imaging of bone tumor and tumor-like lesions. Thirty-six patients including 18 males and 18 females were recruited to undergo ZTE MR and CT. Agreement was assessed between raters and Weight Kappa statistics were performed. The difference of image quality between ZTE and CT imaging were not significant. Our results confirm that ZTE MR imaging provides accurate imaging of bone morphology with CT-like contrast that is not available with standard MR sequences.
