In this study, we evaluated a 2D combined simultaneous multi-contrast acquisition sequence, referred to MAGiC, which allows simultaneously obtaining images to generate, T1, T2, PD, STIR map with acceptable scan duration within a single acquisition. High quality T1- and T2-w images were synthetically generated using mathematical signal models. Prostate images obtained from patients and volunteers showed that T1 and T2 measured by MAGiC were within 16% of the values measured using conventional mapping techniques with reasonable spatial resolution.
