The purpose of this study is to develop a method for simultaneous quantification of T1, T2, and diffusion within the MR Fingerprinting (MRF) framework. Multiple diffusion-weighted driven-equilibrium modules are inserted into the MRF-FISP acquisition in this study.
The results from the prostate show the
promising ability of this combination of MRF-FISP and diffusion preparation
modules to quantify relaxation parameters along with diffusion in one scan.
