The central component of prostate cancer MRI is a
high-resolution T2-weighted (T2w) acquisition.
Quantitative T2-mapping can provide added value, however
current methods are limited by compromises between
spatial resolution, 3D coverage, and scan time. In this
work we show initial results in a pilot patient study of
rapid, quantitative T2 MRI in ~1 min total scan time
using a 3D Dual Echo Steady State (DESS) acquisition.
