Realtime cine MRI of the mouse heart is reported using a single-shot EPI sequence and the KarhunenLoeve transform. The entire mouse heart can be imaged with this technique in less than 5 minutes, using minimal sedation. This report demonstrates the ability of MRI to be used for high-throughput applications, and compete with echocardiography, in the basic science as well as and clinical settings.
