Fast and accurate T1 mapping can be useful in many ways. T-One With Enhanced Robustness and Speed [TOWERS] is a new EPI-based sequence that can acquire enough data for the T1 mapping of the whole brain in less than 2 minutes and a half. It has two segments which are independent of each other in terms of spin history, making it robust to motion in any of the two segments.
