A robust abdominal multi-parametric mapping using multi-echo data is proposed. Reconstructed maps are water, fat images, quantitative susceptibility map (QSM), and R2* map. Fat fraction and iron deposition in the liver may be important parameters for diagnosis. Challenges to the abdominal mapping include large field inhomogeneity, phase wrapping, phase variations from water and fat signal, chemical shift, and physiological motions. We applied simultaneous unwrapping phase and error recovery from inhomogeneity (SUPER) technique to correct field inhomogeneity and phase wrapping. The technique is stably applicable to objects containing water and fat signal, and is also useful as a preprocessing for QSM.
