A radial dual-echo IR-SPGR technique combined with a principal component based iterative reconstruction algorithm are demonstrated for fat and water separated rapid high-resolution abdominal multi-parameter mapping. This method can yield high-quality fat-signal-fraction map, B0 field map, composite T1 map, water component T1 map as well as a R2* map from a scan as fast as 3seconds/slice. The in-plane resolution of the resulting parameter maps is 1.25mm and the through-plane resolution is 5.00mm. With a selective inversion pulse, multiple slices can be acquired within a breath-hold.
