High quality, distortion-free T1, T2 and diffusivity maps in breast imaging are simultaneously generated using MRF framework. A good agreement of T1, T2 and ADC between the proposed MRF method and the traditional spin echo methods is demonstrated in a phantom and in vivo in breast imaging. This method enables the simultaneous collection of T1, T2 and diffusion maps for tissue characterization without the need to co-register separately acquired maps as in conventional MRI.
