The presence of pancreatic fibrosis is a representative feature of the pancreas in patients with impaired glucose tolerance (IGT). The T1 signal intensity of the pancreas is reported to be associated with pancreatic fibrosis and HbA1c values. In this study, we evaluated the feasibility of T1 mapping of the pancreas for the assessment of HbA1c values. Our results showed that increased T1 values of the pancreas was significantly correlated with HbA1c values, so the T1 values of the pancreas could serve as a potential imaging biomarker for the assessment of patients with IGT.
