The aim of this study was to investigate the feasibility of T2* mapping, R2* mapping and T1 mapping techniques for quantitative assessment of primary osteoporosis of the lumbar spine.The differences and correlation between T2* mapping, R2* mapping and T1 mapping values of patients with osteoporosis group and the normal population were analyzed. The statistical results of our data showed that the T2 values in the osteoporotic group of L3 and L5 vertebrae were greater than the normal group, and the R2* values and T1 values were less than the normal group.
