Modified Look-Locker inversion recovery (MOLLI) for high-resolution T1 mapping of the heart



Modified Look-Locker inversion recovery (MOLLI) for high-resolution T1 mapping of the heart



Magnetic Resonance in Medicine 52(1): 141-146



A novel pulse sequence scheme is presented that allows the measurement and mapping of myocardial T1 in vivo on a 1.5 Tesla MR system within a single breath-hold. Two major modifications of conventional Look-Locker (LL) imaging are introduced: 1) selective data acquisition, and 2) merging of data from multiple LL experiments into one data set.
