We present a sequence for simultaneous measurement of PRF, T1, and T2*. The additional information provided by T1 and T2* may be helpful for assessing tissue damage during MR-guided thermal therapies. These properties are analyzed as a function of thermal dose during ex vivo HIFU heating of turkey muscle.
