In this work a helical bSSFP-sequence with a golden
angle acquisition for abdominal imaging is presented.
The technique allows continuously shifting the image
plane along the slice axis. By this a continuous 3D
volume is covered. Using sliding-window reconstruction
slices of arbitrary positions can be obtained. The
in-vivo applications on abdominal imaging during free
breathing are demonstrated.
