A novel optimized method for high-resolution quantitative EPI measurements of T1 is introduced and validated on a 3T clinical scanner in a phantom and a healthy volunteer. The method offers a 5-fold acceleration in scan time over previous techniques allowing fully quantitative 1.2 mm3 isotropic T1 maps in less than 30 seconds.
