Magnetic resonance fingerprinting (MRF) is a technique that enables simultaneous quantification of tissue parameters in a single scan. So far, MRF has been realized mostly for clinical 1.5 T and 3 T scanners, and a preclinical 7 T scanner. Application to a higher field scanner is limited and challenging because of the increased sensitivity to system hardware imperfections, such as B0 and B1 inhomogeneities and slice-profile imperfection. In this study, we assessed the feasibility of the MRF approach in a preclinical, wide-bore 14.1 T system.
