The quantification of MR relaxation times has always been of interest since accurate quantitation can lead to improvement in the detection and staging of various diseases. This abstract describes the development of a novel 3D acquisition method for rapid T1 and T2 quantitation for 3D volumes. T1 and T2 values obtained from the new method have been compared to known values in phantom and in-vivo. Such a method has the potential to reduce of total exam time thus increasing the scan efficiency and clinical throughput.
