Few of the 32,000 MRI scanners around the world are equipped with the latest hardware and software required for advanced imaging. Magnetic Resonance Fingerprinting (MRF) presents an opportunity to expand the value of the existing MRI install base as it is rapid, quantitative, and does not require the latest gradient systems or multi-channel receiver coils. In this work, we demonstrate repeatable and reproducible T1 and T2 MRF maps on a 16-year-old MRI scanner as a proof of principle towards implementing MRF on cheap, legacy MRI scanners.
