The MP2RAGE sequence can be used to provide 7T T1-weighted images and T1 maps with reduced transmitted bias field (B1+) sensitivity, at the cost of limiting the image resolution and contrast to noise ratio (CNR). The FLAWS sequence was derived from the MP2RAGE sequence to provide multiple T1-weigthed contrasts that were shown to be of interest for a wide range of clinical applications. The current study shows that the FLAWS sequence can be used to generate 7T T1-weigthed images and T1 maps with reduced B1+ sensitivity, while overcoming the resolution and CNR limitations imposed to the MP2RAGE sequence.
