Quantitative MRI parameters are determined by the properties of tissue on a microscopic scale and can be expected to reflect microstructural changes created by aging. Here, we investigate a multiparametric qMRI signature of healthy ageing on 26 healthy volunteers, characterised in a high-dimensional parametric space (water content, relaxometry, qMT). Changes with age in the mean values and correlations between parameters are observed and interpreted.
