Q&A with Xing Lu, Saeed Jerban and Jiang Du


The team behind UTE cortical bone imaging

In today’s interview, we continue the exploration of cortical bone microstructure using ultrashort echo time UT imaging with a 3D cone trajectory. In their latest paper joint first authors Xing Lu and Saeed Jerban applied tricomponent analysis to identify bound water, pore water, and fat fractions demonstrating high specificity to bone mineral density.
