The purpose of this work is to propose an accelerated
cardiac-phase-resolved myocardial first-pass perfusion
imaging technique. Using ungated continuous acquisition,
the proposed method is capable of generating "cine"
myocardial perfusion images thereby enabling concurrent
imaging of wall motion and perfusion deficits.
