To quantitatively image myelin on clinical scanners, we propose a Short TR Adiabatic Inversion Recovery prepared UTE (STAIR-UTE) sequence for in vivo brain imaging. With STAIR technique, long T2 tissues with a broad range of T1s can be sufficiently suppressed. Healthy volunteer has a higher myelin proton density in white matter than that in patient with multiple sclerosis.
