OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this study was to assess the feasibility of clinical 3-T ultrashort TE MRI for the visualization of bone cement after percutaneous vertebroplasty. CONCLUSION. Ultrashort TE MRI is useful for evaluating the volume of cement injected at percutaneous vertebroplasty and the presence of cement that has leaked into paraspinal soft tissues and disk spaces.
