Computed tomography (CT) is the current modality of choice for imaging bone yet it suffers from poor soft tissue contrast and utilizes ionizing radiation. Unlike CT, MRI provides excellent soft-tissue contrast, but is limited in its ability to image bone. Here, we describe FRACTURE (FFE Resembling A CT Using Restricted Echo-spacing), a novel 3D gradient-echo approach that offers MRI-based bone contrast to yield clinically relevant information for patient management.
