Cardiac cine MR-imaging at 3T: FLASH vs SSFP.

Abstract:

The implications of an increase in field strength, from 1.5 T to 3 T, for routine functional cardiac examinations have been systematically investigated. Flip angle optimization was carried out for identical SSFP and FLASH cine imaging sequences at 1.5 T and 3 T, which supported the use of 20 degrees (FLASH 1.5 T and 3 T) and >60 degrees (SSFP 1.5 T and 3 T). The optimized sequences were applied in a study of cardiac function in a group of ten normal volunteers. Both SSFP and FLASH sequence...
