Strong fat signal contamination leads to significant errors in quantitative UTE (qUTE) imaging of musculoskeletal tissue. In this study, we used a fat suppression technique to investigate whether fat signals could be sufficiently suppressed in qUTE imaging and whether the fat saturation preparation would affect the resultant qUTE measures due to the induced water attenuation.
