In this study, we proposed a fast pixel-wised T1 mapping method by using the first three images obtained in MOLLI acquisition. The three-point T1 mapping algorithm is based on recently reported a 3D whole brain T1 mapping technique. High correlation of T1 measurements between our method and MOLLI was demonstrated. For patients could not perform long breath-hold successfully, the proposed fast T1 mapping method would offered an appropriate option.
