Comparing the accuracy and precision of SMART1Map, SASHA and MOLLI

Abstract

Background Currently, MOLLI [1] is the most common method for measuring myocardial T1. Because MOLLI uses an SSFP-based Look-Locker approach, only the apparent T1 (T1*) can be measured, and there are concerns about the accuracy of the T1* values due to the dependence on imaging parameters. Alternatives to LookLocker imaging are single-point methods such as… (More)
