Representative rest FPP images of three healthy subjects. Images in the top panel (a1-a3) correspond to the latest vendor-provided conventional FPP method and the bottom row (b1-b3) correspond to the proposed perfusion CMR technique. All images are in the same myocardial enhancement phase. As can be seen, the number of segments affected by DRAs and their severity is reduced in the proposed method compared to the conventional method. (c,d): Histograms of DRA scores for the proposed and conventional methods. DRA is significantly reduced in FPP images acquired with proposed method (1.2 versus 2.0; p<0.01). Importantly, the number of slices with severe DRA (artifact scores = 3 or 4) is significantly lower for the proposed method (by 10 fold) as can be observed by comparing (c) and (d).
