This study focuses on the in vivo determination of the longitudinal relaxation time (T1) of phosphatidylcholine (PtdC) in the gallbladder at 7T and its challenges. In most cases, it was possible to assess T1 with a 1D-ISIS sequence. In cases where the gallbladder is further away from the coil a STEAM sequence, which does not depend on 180° RF pulses, can be used. The T1 values of PtdC ranged between 290 and 480ms.
