Schematic overview of the proposed acquisition kernel. Five cardiac-triggered acquisitions (Acq1- Acq5) are performed during end-diastole. Prior to the first acquisition a T2-sensitizing phase decreases the Mz magnetization proportional to the T2 relaxation. Prior to the second acquisition a T1-sensitizing phase is applied to invert the Mz magnetization. No sensitizing phases are applied before the other acquisitions. The typical Mz magnetization evolution is displayed as the grey dotted line. At each interval the magnetization is labeled as M1-M13.
