The purpose of this work was to develop an ECG-triggered, segmented 3D true-FISP (fast imaging with steady-state precession) technique to improve the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and contrast-to-noise ratio (CNR) of breath-hold coronary artery imaging. The major task was to optimize an appropriate magnetization preparation scheme to permit saturation of the epicardial fat signal. An alpha/2 preparation pulse was used to speed up the approach to steady-state following a frequency-selective fat… CONTINUE READING
