T2-weighted imaging and T2 mapping play an important role in the diagnosis of pathologies and in the quantitative characterization of tissue. 3D imaging and 3D T2 mapping are useful in applications where the anatomical structure can be better viewed by reformatting an isotropic voxel. In this work, we present a technique for isotropic T2 mapping that uses data collected using a radial 3D Fast Spin Echo pulse sequence and a reconstruction technique that generates T2 maps from highly undersampled data.
