Simultaneous T1 and T2 quantification of the myocardium using cardiac balanced-SSFP inversion recovery with interleaved sampling acquisition (CABIRIA).

PURPOSE To develop a novel sequence for simultaneous quantification of T1 and T2 relaxation times in the myocardium based on the transient phase of the balanced steady-state free precession. METHODS A new prototype sequence, named "cardiac balanced-SSFP inversion recovery with interleaved sampling acquisition" (CABIRIA) was developed based on a single… CONTINUE READING
