Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Fingerprinting (cMRF) is a novel technique for simultaneous T1 and T2 quantification in the myocardium. Because cMRF has the potential to take heart rate variations and any variable system properties into account, it is hypothesized that cMRF will enable more reproducible measurements of T1 and T2. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the inter-site reproducibility of cMRF. Excellent agreement of cMRF measurements between two sites (University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, Cleveland, US and McGill University Health Center, Montreal, CA) was achieved in the ISMRM/NIST phantom and in the hearts of healthy subjects.
