A modified Look-Locker acquisition using saturation recovery (MLLSR) for breath-held myocardial T(1) mapping is presented. Despite its reduced dynamic range, saturation recovery enables substantially higher imaging efficiency than conventional inversion recovery T(1) mapping because it does not require time for magnetization to relax to equilibrium.(More)
Contrast-enhanced MR angiography (CE-MRA) using steady-state free precession (SSFP) pulse sequences is described. Using SSFP, vascular structures can be visualized with high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) at a substantial (delay) time after the initial arterial pass of contrast media. The peak blood SSFP signal was diminished by <20% 30 min after the initial(More)
