The T1 relaxation time is a fundamental quantitative Magnetic Resonance parameter widely used to characterize healthy and pathological tissue. However, investigation of quantitative T1 in the human spinal cord has been limited to date. In this work, we propose a scan time efficient protocol in the spinal cord for Inversion Recovery T1 mapping, which is considered the “gold-standard” method. The mean (± standard deviation) T1 for white matter and grey matter in the cervical spinal cord were found to be respectively 1096 (±26) ms and 1153 (±24) ms.
