Purpose: Current standards in magnetic resonance imaging of congenital heart disease are based mostly on anisotropic protocols to image both morphology and function. Operator-dependent acquisition planning is typically needed to obtain the desired images. We propose to instead use operator-independent, three-dimensional, isotropic imaging protocols to acquire both morphology and function (cine and flow) of the entire heart in a few standardized acquisitions. Subsequently, due to the isotropic… CONTINUE READING
