We propose a technique to obtain cine images and accurate B1-corrected T1 maps in a single free-breathing continuous Look-Locker inversion-recovery acquisition modified to use two excitation flip angles. Data are acquired using a single spiral interleaf, rotated by the golden-angle in time, with an inversion RF pulse applied every four seconds. Cine images are reconstructed from the steady state portion of the signal, while T1 mapping fits the model using maps with two flip angles. This strategy provides cine images and T1 maps, as well as a flip angle scale factor map, in a single free-breathing continuous acquisition.
