Relaxation times T1 and T2 and proton density N(H) are intrinsic tissue properties which dictate in part the appearance of magnetic resonance images. In this work methods are presented for estimating these quantities using high speed fitting algorithms. A technique is described which uses a digital video processor for generating a computed T1 image from two acquired images in approximately one second. Comparable results are possible with T2 fitting as well.
