We present an efficient MR Fingerprinting (MRF) protocol for prostate imaging at 3T. Full prostate coverage is achieved in 04:20 min with no considerable reconstruction latency. Dixon-MRF has been implemented in the scanner software and combined with a B1+ DREAM scan in a fully-integrated B1-corrected MRF reconstruction. Furthermore, flow compensation is included to suppress artifacts caused by blood flow in large vessels. The proposed prostate MRF protocol has been evaluated in six healthy volunteers.
