T1 mapping is a crucial technique for myocardial tissue characterization. T1-mapping MOLLI sequences are widely used in the clinic but fast prototyping for concept testing and improvements is challenging and time consuming as it requires knowledge of the vendor specific programming environment. The use of an open-source framework would enable faster sequence prototyping, and facilitate reproducibility studies of new T1 mapping techniques. The aim of this work is to develop an open-source Prototype of Myocardial T1 mapping (ProMyoT1) using Pulseq to implement an inversion recovery T1 mapping sequence based on the MOLLI inversion/triggering scheme.
