The MR Fingerprinting Development Kit takes files describing the input parameters T1, T2, RF- flip angles and pulse phases.
This input generates a customized MR Fingerprinting sequence. The input also serves as the basis for a Bloch simulation, which creates a MR Fingerprinting dictionary unique to its input parameters.
In a final step, the new MR Fingerprinting sequence and its unique dictionary are bundled in the so-called MR Fingerprinting container. This container can be transferred and executed on a qualified MAGNETOM 3T scanner from Siemens Healthineers2 with a valid MR Fingerprinting license.
The sequence generation, the Bloch simulation, and the creation of the MR Fingerprinting container are performed by running a Windows command line tool3 provided with the MR Fingerprinting Development Kit.
