Ultrashort TE (UTE) sequences have the capability to image tissues with very short T2s that typically appear as low signal in clinical sequences. UTE sequences can also be used in multi-echo acquisitions which allow assessment of the T2s of these tissues. Here we study the accuracy of such T2 measurements when combined with fat saturation (FS).
