Inversion recovery and echo time series were obtained at 7T with a multi-transmit system to determine the T1 and T2 relaxation times of the healthy pancreas. These parameters are crucial when optimizing MR protocols. The T1 and T2 values found were in average 921+/-98 ms and 57+/-12 ms respectively. Excellent T2 contrast is obtained for the pancreas at TE/TR=80ms/17s.
