Human imaging of phosphorus in cortical and trabecular bone in vivo.
Phosphorus was imaged in vivo in human cortical and trabecular bone and the T(1) and T(2) (*) were measured. An ultrashort TE (UTE) pulse sequence (TE = 70 microm) was used with half pulse excitation and radial mapping of k-space from the center out. T(2) (*) was measured using multiple echo times and T(1) was measured both by saturation recovery and by a method using different RF pulse amplitudes. Seven normal subjects (32-85 years) were examined. Phosphorus was imaged, with a true in-plane ...Expand abstract
