Myocardial T1 mapping is a quantitative MRI technique that has found great clinical utility in the detection of various heart disease. These acquisitions typically require three breath-holds, leading to long scan durations and patient discomfort. Simultaneous multi-slice (SMS) imaging has been shown to reduce the scan time of myocardial T1 mapping to a single breath-hold without sacrificing coverage, albeit at reduced precision. In this work, we propose a new reconstruction strategy for SMS imaging that combines the advantages of two different k-space interpolation strategies, while allowing for regularization, in order to improve the precision of accelerated myocardial T1 mapping.
