Estimating quantitative magnetization transfer (MT) parameters using pulsed off-resonance saturation is a challenging task. We present a new fitting approach of estimating MT parameters for arbitrary pulse sequences using a fast and accurate description of the pulse sequence by solving the McConnell equations numerically using matrix algebra.
