Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Fingerprinting (MRF) has been proposed for simultaneous myocardial T1, T2 and fat fraction quantification using ECG-triggering, mid-diastolic acquisition window and a 3-echo gradient echo sequence. Here we extend this framework to further enable T2* quantification. This is achieved with an 8-echo sequence with increased acquisition window (to acquire sufficient data within a breath-hold) and a low-rank motion correction reconstruction to correct for cardiac motion within this increased window. The proposed approach enables simultaneous mapping of T1, T2, T2* and fat fraction within a single breath-hold with similar quality to conventional (sequential) single parameter approaches.
