Correlation of LV cavity areas of eight healthy animals for end-diastolic phase (a) and end-systolic phase (b) obtained from reference acquisitions (R = 1.0) and acquisitions accelerated by a factor of R = 3.0. The slope of the linear fits and the R2 values indicate the degree of correlation between accelerated and non-accelerated CMR acquisition. (c) Mean deviation of LV parameters (ΔP
) of end-diastolic volume (EDV), end-systolic volume (ESV), stroke volume (SV) and ejection fraction (EF) from the reference values (LV parameters obtained for R = 1.0) calculated according to Eq.  for all acceleration factors R over all healthy animals (N = 8).
