T1 and T2 mapping of abdominal organs provides valuable information for characterization of abdominal pathologies, but is limited by technical difficulties. Previous work has demonstrated the utility of MR Fingerprinting (MRF) for abdominal relaxometry. However, there are still limited normative data for different abdominal organs. In this study, 2D MRF was applied to 22 subjects to establish normative values for abdominal organs at 3T and assess repeatability. Our results demonstrated a good agreement with the literature and repeatability of the measurement. The values obtained in this study can also serve as a reference for future clinical studies.
