  • Patent number: 10552953
    Abstract: A magnetic resonance imaging apparatus includes processing circuitry. The processing circuitry performs first imaging to acquire multiple magnetic resonance signals that are used to derive a quantitative value of tissue. The processing circuitry derives a quantitative value of tissue on the basis of the multiple magnetic resonance signals. The processing circuitry displays, on a display, an estimated image obtained by estimating, through a calculation, an image to be obtained by performing second imaging different from the first imaging on the basis of the derived quantitative value of tissue. The processing circuitry acquires an image by performing the second imaging in which an imaging parameter corresponding to the estimated image is set.
