Sweep imaging with Fourier transform (SWIFT) method has been developed to image tissues with very short T2 values, such as cortical bone. The purpose of this study was to measure the T1 value of the rat cortical bone. It was approximately 120 ms on 7.04T. This result could thus be useful for studying bony tissue according to the SWIFT method in the future.
