MR imaging can provide information regarding the electric and magnetic properties of tissue (i.e. conductivity, and susceptibility). Various studies using these electrical conductivity and magnetic susceptibility properties were performed independently. In this abstract, we propose a new method for performing three applications (i.e. conductivity mapping, short TE QSM, QSM) simultaneously using double-echo UTE sequence. From the first echo data, we acquired conductivity maps and short TE QSM, and from the second echo data, QSM was obtained.
