Quantitative magnetic resonance imaging (qMRI) aims at directly measuring physical tissue properties to be more independent from technical influences. However, parameter mapping is often long and 2D-based. In this work, we propose a protocol for 3D brain T1 and T2 mapping accelerated by compressed sensing. To improve T2 accuracy, we also implemented a T1-informed T2 dictionary fitting technique. Preliminary results showed the ability of the protocol to provide T1 and T2 maps at a 1x1x1.2mm3 resolution in 14:05min as well as the accuracy of the mapping. Establishing a fast 3D protocol will enable generating high-resolution atlases as a next step.
