Here, we present a fast multi-parameter quantitative MRI protocol to estimate R1, R2* and MT saturation in the cervical spinal cord, acquired using only vendor-supplied sequences, in clinically acceptable acquisition times (~11 minutes total). The proposed protocol can be easily adapted to clinical scanners, and requires only stock sequences and freely available post-processing tools, and is faster than a comparable protocol required for PSR mapping in a qMT framework.
