This study shows the practical implementation of an accelerated Cartesian Magnetic Resonance Fingerprinting (MRF) scheme using a multi-shot Echo Planar Imaging (EPI) readout. Its performance is compared with conventional spiral MRF and the fast convergence of accelerated iterative reconstructions for this method is shown.
