From 3D data acquired over no more than a few minutes, the present method aims to evaluate all of the main physical MR parameters: T1, T2, T2*, M0, B0 and B1. A single pulse sequence is employed, and the various MR parameters can be evaluated one at a time and/or through linear equations, as opposed to numerically solving larger and non-linear systems of equations involving many or all parameters at once. As few as only two MR scans may be acquired, using different nominal user-input flips angles and/or different repetition times. Simulated and phantom results are presented.
