This study proposes a rapid and accurate MR fingerprinting (MRF) framework based on a diffusion-prepared, turbo spin-echo (DP-TSE) sequence. Compared to both conventional parametric mapping and recent FISP-based MRF methods, the proposed framework provides accurate T2 maps and three main apparent diffusion coefficients (ADCs) for 15 slices within 7 minutes. This new MRF strategy can achieve accurate, inherently co-registered, high resolution T2 and ADC maps simultaneously.
