Abstract: Fast and accurate modeling of MR signal responses are typically required forvarious quantitative MRI applications, such as MR Fingerprinting and MR-STAT.This work uses a new EPG-Bloch model for accurate simulation of transient-stategradient-spoiled MR sequences, and proposes a Recurrent Neural Network (RNN) asa fast surrogate of the EPG-Bloch model for computing large-scale MR signalsand derivatives. The computational efficiency of the RNN model is demonstratedby comparing with other existing models, showing one to three orders ofacceleration comparing to the latest GPU-accelerated open-source EPG package.By using numerical and in-vivo brain data, two use cases, namely MRF dictionarygeneration and optimal experimental design, are also provided. Results showthat the RNN surrogate model can be efficiently used for computing large-scaledictionaries of transient-states signals and derivatives within tens ofseconds, resulting in several orders of magnitude acceleration with respect tostate-of-the-art implementations. The practical application of transient-statesquantitative techniques can therefore be substantially facilitated.
