We evaluated the ability of three reported MR fingerprinting methods to mitigate the effect of B1+ inhomogeneity at 7T. Results from each method were compared with gold standard results. All methods provided relatively accurate T1 quantification. We show that T2 cannot be accurately quantified at 7T without accounting for B1+ in the MR fingerprinting dictionary. The Inversion-Recovery-FISP-FLASH (IRFF) method provided the most accurate T2 values. We conclude that the use of both FISP and FLASH segments best encodes B1+ into the fingerprint.
