-weighted images of a healthy volunteer with and without MSDE magnetization preparation. Visually strong and homogenous suppression of the blood-signal can be observed. b) Corresponding T1 quantification in the myocardium using conventional and black-blood T1 mapping. Visually homogenous T1 times are observed around the myocardium using both methods. c) T1 times through the myocardial thickness analyzed separately for the anterolateral, inferolateral and septal part of the myocardium. Conventional T1 mapping shows strongly elevated T1 times at the endo- and/or the epicardial border. No such elevation is observed with black-blood T1 mapping.
