Fast saturation recovery turboFLASH imaging introduces a saturation-time dependent filter on the magnetization-prepared k-space. To mitigate these filtering effects for reliable T1 measurements, multiple k-space segmentation schemes were simulated to characterize the tradeoff between the accuracy of T1 determination and total measurement time.
