We present an optimised method for high temporal resolution quantitative dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE)-MRI of the brain at 3 T. We demonstrate accurate T1 measurement and dynamic contrast enhancement in a glioma patient. We also demonstrate that the method is equally applicable at 1.5 T, allowing the possibility of quantitative cross-platform studies.
