This work presents a study detailing the reproducibility of ultrashort-T2* measurements using a novel UTE relaxometry method. Generated parameter maps show similar looking structures in terms of intensity and definition. Furthermore, the distributions of the ultrashort-T2* fractional component in various brain ROIs show similar distributions and have low coefficients of variance. These results suggest the proposed UTE relaxometry method is reproducible and can reliably measure parameters of the brain ultrashort-T2* component.
