We propose a new 3D simultaneous T1 and T2 mapping technique to acquire accurate co-registered 3D T1 and T2 maps of the entire left ventricle in a single breath-hold. The technique combines T2-prep and saturation pulses with compressed SENSE.

The proposed sequence successfully acquired co-registered 3D T1 and T2 maps in a single breath-hold of 17 s (HR=60 bpm). Phantom estimated T1 and T2 values were in agreement with gold-standard values obtained from IR-SE and GraSE, respectively. Accuracy and precision results were similar to previously published values for saturation recovery at 3T.
