A single breath-hold 3D method was developed for simultaneous quantification of the T1 and T2 relaxation time over the complete myocardial volume. T1 and T2 maps of 13 slices were acquired in 15 heart-beats. The method was based on a 3D cardiac triggered, interleaved Look-Locker sequence, combined with T2 prep pulses. The measured T1 and T2 values correlated well with T1 and T2 measurements using other methods such as inversion recovery and multi-echo CPMG.
