UTE imaging techniques, including quantitative measurements such as T2* and off resonance saturation ratios, are increasingly being investigated in patients with musculoskeletal diseases which involve tissues that are difficult to assess with conventional MRI. Diseases that have been assessed using UTE imaging include Achilles tendinopathy, articular cartilage and meniscal injury in the knee and degenerative disc disease in the spine. UTE imaging estimates of cortical bone pore water are being validated with the aim of improving fracture risk assessment.
