Magnetic Resonance Fingerprinting
MRF is a potentially disruptive new approach to quantitative data acquisition, while reducing complexity in imaging.
MRF is designed to provide quantitative multiparametric maps with a high level of robustness and reproducibility. This type of signal acquisition could enable a new level of comparability and consistency in MRI.
Through multiparametric maps acquired simultaneously, MRF is designed to enable tissue characterization with quantitative parameters to help detect and analyze early tissue changes.
Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) exclusively partners with Siemens Healthcare in order to further refine this highly promising method of quantitative tissue analysis.
Magnetic Resonance Fingerprinting is currently under development and not commercially available. It is not for sale in the US or other countries. Its future availability cannot be guaranteed.
