T1 has been measured in human brain at 7T using an IR-TSE sequence. T1 maps and high resolution T1-weighted images have been acquired from 6 subjects. The T1 in cortical white matter was 1017 86ms and the T1 in cortical grey matter was 1654 21ms averaged over all subjects. The T1 in the caudate nucleus was measured to be 1480 63ms, while the T1 in the putamen was 1327 45ms. T1 maps and high resolution T1-weighted images have been obtained.
