A recently proposed MR fingerprinting (MRF) technique was used to acquire quantitative multi-parametric maps in about 3 minutes for diagnosis of mesial temporal lobe epilepsy in 20 patients. The results could improve the reliability and sensitivity of MRI evaluations in such patients compared with conventional MRI diagnosis methods.
