Current methods for MRI of infarcted myocardium require ECG-gating and breath-holding during contrast-enhanced segmented k-space inversion-recovery (IR) imaging. However, ECG-gating can be problematic in MRI, and breath-holding can be difficult for some patients. This work demonstrates that infarcted tissue can be visualized without ECG-gating or breath-holding with the use of intermittent inversion pulses during real-time (RT) interactive imaging with steady-state free precession (SSFP).
