CMR is generally accepted as the gold standard for left ventricular (LV) volumes and function assessment. The conventional CMR approach involves several breath-holds to cover the entire heart with short-axis acquisitions. Recently, compressed sensing (CS) techniques emerged as a means to considerably accelerate data acquisition. CS principally relies on: 1) transform sparsity, 2) incoherence of undersampling artifacts, and 3) nonlinear reconstruction. PURPOSE: To compare a novel CS-based single breath-hold multi-slice cine technique with the standard multi-breath-hold technique for the assessment of LV volumes and function.
This is the first clinical experience with a novel CS-based cine sequence. These preliminary results demonstrate the potential of this fast single breath-hold technique to replace the multi-breath-hold standard technique for the assessment of LV volumes and function.
