This work presents a framework for inversion-recovery (IR)-prepared stack-of-stars imaging and its applications for rapid free-breathing 3D liver MRI. Building upon a previously developed stack-of-stars 3D GRE sequence (RAVE: RAdial Volumetric Encoding), a non-selective 180o IR pulse has been implemented that is periodically played-out to achieve IR preparation (IR-Prepped RAVE). The new sequence allows (1) single-echo acquisition in combination with GRASP-Pro (imProved Golden-angle RAdial Sparse Parallel) reconstruction for free-breathing volumetric T1 mapping of the liver, and (2) multi-echo acquisition in combination with dynamic model-based reconstruction for IR-prepped and contrast-resolved fat/water separation.
