The spin-lattice relaxation time (T1) of tissues can be
estimated from a set of T1 weighted images. Even though
T1 mapping has a broad range of potential applications,
T1 maps are not routinely used in clinical practice. The
high acquisition time of the necessary set of high
resolution T1 weighted images is not clinically
feasible. We propose to use super-resolution in
combination with T1 estimation to provide a better trade
off between the acquisition time, SNR and spatial
resolution of the T1 maps.
