Magnetic resonance fingerprinting (MRF) provides fast and simultaneous mapping of parameters including T1 and T2. However, T2 mapping in MRF has been less robust and accurate than T1 in its current form. In this work, we propose a new sequence with spiral-out and -in double echoes (SOIDE) for MRF in each TR block which provide double echo signal with better T2 contrast. The proposed SOIDE-MRF shows improved performance over FISP-MRF, as demonstrated in Monte Carlo simulation on a numerical brain phantom (at Tacq=6s/slice, NRMSE of T2 reduced to 9.41% in SOIDE-MRF, and FISP-MRF ~11% at Tacq=12s/slice) and in vivo brain (less biased and more stable T2).
