This study evaluates spiral as an alternative to Cartesian in axial T2*-weighted gradient echo imaging of the spine. SNR and CNR measurements were performed on spine data from a healthy volunteer. Expert reviewer ratings were also performed on data from 5 patients. Both the SNR/CNR measurements and reviewer ratings indicate that spiral can yield superior image quality without significant artifacts for a given scan time.
