T1 and T2 relaxation mapping of tissues could provide valuable information for pathologic characterization but is limited by long scan time and consequently hampered routine clinical integration. This study aimed to investigate the ability of T1 and T2 values derived from synthetic technique dubbed MAGnetic resonance image Compilation (MAGiC) in the characterization of cervical squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). Mean T2 value was significantly higher in FIGO stage III~IV than FIGO stage I~II which demonstrated that T2 value could be a potential imaging biomarker for FIGO staging in SCC.
