We demonstrate 3D stack-of-spiral MRF acquisition with hybrid sliding-window and GRAPPA (SW+GRAPPA) reconstruction using a constant density spiral (CDS) rather than standard variable density spiral (VDS). The CDS was found to mitigates high-frequency artifacts after in-plane sliding-window (SW) combination and improve the subsequent GRAPPA and dictionary matching reconstruction. The proposed 3D constant density stack-of-spiral MRF allows whole-brain (240×240×192 mm3) parametric mapping at 1 mm isotropic resolution with high quality in 8 minutes.
