Three T1 times gives 95%. Spins are considered completely relaxed after T1 times. Another term that you may hear is the T1 relaxation rate. This is merely the reciprocal of the T1 time (1/T1). T1 relaxation is fastest when the motion of the nucleus (rotations and translations or "tumbling rate") matches that of the Larmor frequency. As in conventional 1 H MRI, T 1 and T 2 relaxation times of hyperpolarized (HP) 13 C nuclei can provide important biomedical information. Two new approaches were developed for simultaneous T 1 and T 2 mapping of HP 13 C probes based on balanced steady state free precession (bSSFP) acquisitions: a method based on sequential T 1 and T 2 mapping modules, and a model-based joint T 1 /T 2 Author: Eugene Milshteyn, Galen D. Reed, Jeremy W. Gordon, Cornelius von Morze, Peng Cao, Shuyu Tang, Andrew. T2 relaxation always proceeds at a faster rate than T1 relaxation; thus the the T1 relaxation time is always longer than or equal to T2. Approximate values of T1 and T2 at T To the left is a table listing T1 and T2 values for hydrogen nuclei in various biological tissues. This is not the case, however, because it is the relaxation rates, not relaxation times, that are additive and proportional to the concentration of gadolinium. Additionally, most biological tissues possess a marked natural disparity in their baseline relaxation times; T1 t is often 5 to 10 times longer than T2 t and therefore contributes further to the unequal effects of gadolinium on observed relaxation rates.

Longitudinal relaxation is modeled as exponential growth curve with time constant T1. M reaches 63% of its maximum value (Mo) at t = T1 and is very close to maximal at t = 5 x T1.

The length of time the system will remain there depends on the local conditions (Figure ).

In this work, we present a simultaneous quantification of T 1-T 2 relaxation times of a short-axis view of the heart in a single scan.
