PURPOSE To prospectively determine the feasibility and accuracy of a four-dimensional (4D) k-space over time broad-use linear acquisition speed-up technique (k-t BLAST) for the evaluation of left ventricular (LV) volumes in comparison to standard multiple-breathhold cine imaging, using a 3.0 Tesla (3T) MR system. MATERIALS AND METHODS In 23 subjects, short-axis cine loops completely covering the LV were acquired using conventional turbo gradient echo (GRE) imaging. Immediately after… CONTINUE READING
