In patients with vertebral fractures or degenerative changes often CT and MR imaging are performed, with CT aiming at the characterization of osseous changes and the MR focusing on soft tissue components. Previous work presented a single UTE-Dixon (sUTE-Dixon) approach which enabled the simultaneous assessment of vertebral fractures and edema of the thoracolumbar spine from a single ultrashort-echo time (UTE) image. This work investigates the robustness of the sUTE-Dixon methodology in various skeletal anatomies.
