TAPIR is an extremely flexible Look-Locker sequence that allows choices to be made regarding coverage and number of time points acquired on the recovery curve. We are using AFP inversion pulses to be more accurate and a segmented EPI readout together with parallel imaging to reduce the total acquisition time.
