3D steady-state free precession. A patient with transposition of the great arteries who has undergone a Senning operation. An ECG and respiratory navigator-gated 3D SSFP sequence was utilized to generate a 3D volume with 1.5 mm isotropic resolution timed to mid-diastole. The navigator efficiency was 45% and the acquisition time was 6 minutes. Multiplanar reformatting of this volume allows a comprehensive morphologic evaluation of the heart and great vessels including the Senning pathways (A, B, and C).
