  1. Note: IR-SE T1 and partition coefficient values are shown in bold. MOLLI T1 and partition coefficient values are displayed inside parenthesis. Data obtained from 4 vials that mimic the T1/T2 of pre- and post-contrast myocardium and blood pool from the 5 scanners. T2 values for both 1.5T and 3T are displayed at the bottom of the table.
