Magnetic resonance fingerprinting (MRF) is an exceptional promise for simultaneous quantification of T1 and T2 maps, based on the traditional Bloch equation formalism of MR and numerous readouts. In this work, a Fractional-order model of the Bloch equations is applied to create the dictionary of the T1 and T2 maps used in MRF. The simulations show that the proposed method can improve the evaluation accuracy of the T1 and T2 maps comparing with the conventional MRF methods with the traditional first-order model of the Bloch simulation.
