A rapid chemical shift imaging technique is presented that provides T2* values and T1-W amplitudes of multiple chemical species in addition to accurate and precise temperature estimates. Temperature response of each parameter is correlated with Arrhenius rate analysis to determine if measurements can aid in verifying treatment goals.
