We evaluated an MRF-EPI sequence for simultaneous T1 and T2* quantification in 44 patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) lesions at two scanners. We found significantly increased T1 and T2* times in MS lesions with differences up to 100 %. MS lesions resulted in broad distribution in the T1, T2* space compared with dense, separated clusters for white and gray matter.
