MRI is a notoriously slow imaging method, but in recent years many technical developments have improved acquisition speed. However, many of these new fast sequences have not made their way to clinical practice. Barriers to uptake include long reconstruction times, diminished image quality, and non-standard contrast in the resulting images. Our objective is to translate a ~1 minute MRF sequence into clinical practice, providing five high quality images with common clinical contrasts at 1 mm isotropic-resolution, as well as quantitative T1, T2, and proton density maps, all within a 5 minute reconstruction pipeline that we have deployed clinically.
