Evaluation of cardiac morphology is an important part of routine diagnostic applications of cardiac MRI. A new blood suppression iMSDE (improved motion-sensitized driven equilibrium) method based on the flow dephasing effect has been recently proposed for vascular applications. In this study we aim to develop a novel reliable and time-efficient cardiac black-blood imaging method based on the iMSDE principle.
