This study demonstrates the development of a 3D T2-prepared MRF sequence, in combination with a stack-of-spirals trajectory, for simultaneous T1 and T2 mapping of an ex vivo macaque monkey (Macaca mulatta) brain with a voxel size of 0.35x0.35x1 mm3. Retrospective evaluation of the undersampling accuracy showed that, for an undersampling rate of up to 16, the normalized root mean square error was within 6% and 15% in T1 and T2 mapping, respectively. These results suggest that 3D simultaneous T1 and T2 mapping can be in <30 min with unprecedented spatial resolution.
