This study presents the application of Tissue Specific Imaging (TSI), a double inversion recovery variant that produces three single tissue type images, to the quantitative mapping of tissue T1 values. The methodology presented, which can add value to the application of TSI, is stable over a wide range of T1 values, up to 4500 ms for usually encountered signal-to-noise ratio values.
