PURPOSE Electrocardiogram (ECG)-gated cine MRI provides highly accurate functional assessment of the heart. Nevertheless, reliable ECG signals are not always available due to patient's electrophysiology or due to high MR field strengths. Here, a novel framework for cardiac functional assessment using physiological information is presented, which is obtained from MR image data. METHODS Multiple long-axis slices rotated around the center axis of the left ventricle are acquired using a 2D Golden… CONTINUE READING
