MR-based Attenuation Correction (MRAC) is crucial for PET quantitation and image quality in a hybrid PET/MR system. An ideal MR sequence for attenuation correction should at least satisfy three criteria: (1) whole-body scan capabilities; (2) good anatomical localization; (3) robust tissue classification. UTE-mDixon (if it is still meant generally here, it should be Dixon, not mDixon, and you should add some references) sequences have demonstrated great potential for enhancing contrast of cortical bone and for water/fat separation within a single acquisition. Herein we report our initial experience of utilizing a UTE-mDixon sequence for whole-body PET/MR attenuation correction
