Quantitative myocardial perfusion MRI depends on accurate determination of the arterial input function. By calculating blood and myocardial T1 values during the first pass, CA concentration can be estimated accurately, overcoming the signal saturation problem. This method requires only a single scan which minimizes both scan time and setup time.
