Magnetic Resonance Fingerprinting with Quadratic RF Phase (MRFqRF) can simultaneously map T1, T2, T2* and off-resonance. It has been shown that local field inhomogeneities due to susceptibility is encoded in MRFqRF off-resonance maps. Here publicly available standard QSM processing tools were used to analyze two high resolution 3D MRFqRF datasets from 3T. Susceptibility contrast is revealed after phase unwrapping, background removal and B1 correction. QSM preprocessed data was further analyzed with two dipole kernel inversion algorithms. Susceptibility encoding in MRF framework is novel and brings immediate additional value to MRI exam.
