This study proposes a novel method for simultaneous T1w and T2w imaging using RF phase-modulated 3D gradient-echo imaging. T1-weighted and T2-weighted (T1w and T2w) imaging are essential sequences in routine clinical practice to detect and characterize a wide variety of pathologies. Many approaches have been proposed to obtain T1w and T2w contrast, although many challenges still remain, including long acquisition time and limitations that favor 2D imaging.
