Exact sequence modelling using the Bloch equations is employed to directly extract quantitative T1 and T2 relaxation maps from standard MRI sequences. The need for excess specialized sequences was eliminated by measuring relaxation directly from T1, T2, and PD-weighted images, and a rapid B1 map. This approach enables wider use of quantitative MRI.
