A novel 2D multi-slice pulse sequence uses a magnetization preparation scheme to impart varying degrees of T1- and T2- weighting in a single scan enabling simultaneous quantitation of T1, T2, and M0. Using this new method, in vivo T1 and T2 maps of the head and knee were acquired. Measured T1 and T2 values were within published ranges.
