Here we exploit the inter-dependence of quantitative MRI (qMRI) parameters via relaxometry modelling to generate synthetic quantitative maps of magnetisation transfer saturation. The utility of the new concept of synthetic quantitative data is demonstrated by improving image segmentation of deep gray matter structures for neuroimaging applications.
