An ECG-triggered multi-slice saturation-recovery Look-Locker (MSRLL) method was developed for fast cardiac T1 mapping. High temporal resolution (2.5 minutes) was achieved without the aid of parallel imaging or EPI. Phantom and in vivo validations were performed by comparing measured T1 with that using the single-slice Look-Locker method.
