NMR microscopy provides a variety of image contrast with a high spatial resolution. However, 3D NMR multi-parameter mapping with large matrix sizes is time consuming and practically difficult to apply to living samples. Here we introduced magnetic resonance fingerprinting (MRF) technique to 3D NMR multi-parameter microscopy, which could reduce the scan time largely. We verified the feasibility of the relaxation and proton density mapping using a vertical wide bore superconducting magnet. The 3D MRF for a grape berry provided the T1, T2, and proton density maps in the short measurement time that can be used to extract important structural information.
