Synopsis

- The proposed method allows a comprehensive relaxation times estimation (T1, T2, T2*) on MRgRT systems.

- The methodology was validated on phantom and volunteer for accuracy and reproducibility.

- For T1 and T2, less than 5 % coefficient of variation was observed and less than 10 % for the T2*.

- Trends on 5 patients show a slight decrease and a recovery for the T1 and T2 values in both the boost and whole prostate during their treatment.

- The dispersion of T1 and T2 decreased for all patients for the whole prostate whereas it was stable for the boost.
