Clinical applications of cardiac MRI increasingly require realtime assessment of regional function. This abstract presents cine imaging of through-slice strain over multiple cardiac phases in a single shot. It is based on the DENSE displacement mapping technique and is useful for monitoring cardiac function under changes of physiological condition, such as stress tests.
