For tissues with very short T2* values ultrashort echo time T2* (UTE -T2*) mapping is used instead of conventional multi echo approach because in the latter case echo time spacing is too large for the fast signal decay in rigid bodys. Since a full sampled image is measured for every TE value UTE-T2* mapping is a very time consuming approach. Using a contrast manipulating mixed k-space (COMMIX) approach provides multiple TE images in a single k-space data set.
