Quantitative mapping of the longitudinal relaxation time has gained increasing interest as it allows monitoring of important structural and functional information of the myocardium. The MOLLI sequence commonly used in clinical research requires a high quality of the inversion pulses for unbiased quantification which is non-trivial especially at high fields. In this work we present a simple modification of the MOLLI sequence which in combination with the recently introduced IGF post processing solves the problem of insufficient inversion quality as demonstrated in phantom experiments.
