In this study we designed a novel hybrid T1 and T2 magnetization preparation pulse (T2IR) and implement a combined T1 and T2 mapping sequence based on MOLLI scheme. Phantom experiments showed that the proposed sequence has high consistency with reference methods for both T1 (R2= 0.99) and T2 (R2=0.97) measurements. In vivo results showed that high quality T1 and T2 maps of myocardium could be obtained by the proposed sequence.
