Short-T2* magnetization (order of [0.1,1ms]) can relax appreciably during standard-rate excitation pulses, which can bias estimates of relaxation rates formed by fitting to observed signal decay. The effect can, however, be included in an updated model to improve T2* estimation for fast-relaxing signals. Here, a demonstration is presented.
