Ultra short echo time (UTE) imaging has proven its
potential for radiation free detection of caries lesions
and also for classification of lesion progression using
ultra short T2* mapping. The UTE imaging sequence is
very sensitive to gradient delay related k-space center
shifts and off-resonance effects. C APRI allows
automatic correction of gradient delays, reduces
off-resonance and T2 induced blurring artefacts and
provides T2* mapping for lesion classification.
