Magnetization-prepared cardiac imaging using gradient echo acquisition

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

18 Scopus citations


Magnetization-prepared 2DFT and 3DFT gradient echo techniques are presented for acquisition of black blood cardiac images. Both methods incorporate RF pulses for blood saturation, centric or centric-like view ordering, data acquisition during late diastole, and breath-holding. In a series of 13 volunteer studies, these methods have consistently provided good visualization of intraventricular structures.
