Age dependency of T1 and T2 times of the healthy pancreas at 7 Tesla with a multi-transmit system was investigated for MRI protocol optimization of the pancreas. Three age groups were measured (21 -25 yo, 26 -39 yo and 40 -72 yo). Measurements resulted in average T2 times of 52 ms, 97 ms and 127 ms for the 3 different age groups respectively, revealing an age dependency of the T2 relaxation times. Average T1 times were 856 ms, 899 ms and 858 ms for each age group respectively. No age dependency was observed for the T1 relaxation times.
