The purpose of this study was to determine whether steady-state free precession (SSFP) could improve accuracy of geometric models for evaluation of left ventricular (LV) function in comparison to turbo gradient echo (TGrE) and thereby reduce the acquisition and post-processing times, which are commonly long by use of the Simpson's Rule. In 25 subjects, cine loops of the complete heart in short and horizontal long-axis planes were acquired using TGrE (TR/TE/flip = 5.0/1.9/25) compared with SSFP… CONTINUE READING
