In this study, spin-lock and 2D UTE pulse sequences were developed to quantify T and T2* of 32 rat livers with iron overload at 11.7T MR system. Moreover, T2 was also acquired to compare with T and T2*. Pearson correlation analyses (two-tailed) illustrated that T were significantly associated with T2 (all p ≤ 0.002), but insignificantly related with T2* (all p > 0.05). No significant association was found between T2 and T2*.
