T relaxation, known as the spin‐lattice relaxation time in the rotating frame, is sensitive to molecular interactions including dipolar interactions, chemical exchange, and diffusion. T is often measured by mono-exponential relaxation models. Bi-exponential T relaxation have been previously observed in muscle, cartilage, menisci and brain. We report our observation of bi-exponential T relaxation in parotid glands.
