Fingerprinting (MRF) enables simultaneous quantification of multiple relaxation
parameters, which is further accelerated by usage of simultaneous multi-slice (SMS)
technique. SENSE based SMS-MRF reconstruction suffers high g-factor penalty due
to similar coil sensitivity profiles of collapsed slices. Here we proposed a
new method to solve this problem, by data re-grouping from adjacent time
points, spatial controlled aliasing is enabled, after dictionary matching, good
parameter mapping of 2 slices with nearly the same sensitivity is acquired at
half the acquisition time of single-excitation MRF.
