Three-dimensional T1rho imaging is promising in a number clinical applications. We present a 3D T1rho imaging method based on pseudo steady fast spin echo acqustion. High SNR and scan efficiency are demonstrated using in-vivo scan. Unlike the other existing 3D T1rho imaging methods, no prior knowledge of tissue propeties are required for the presented method.
