Quantitative MR imaging in the abdomen is challenging due to the need for large organ coverage, field inhomogeneities, and respiratory motion. In this study, a rapid and robust MR fingerprinting (MRF) technique was developed for abdominal imaging using the previously introduced MRF framework in combination with a FISP acquisition and a Bloch-Siegert B1 mapping method. This technique allows accurate and simultaneous quantification of T1, T2 and proton density within one clinically feasible breath-hold.
