We proposed a cardiac and respiratory self-gated, 4D multi-phase steady-state imaging with contrast (MUSIC) technique for detailed evaluation of cardiovascular anatomies. A rotating cartesian k-space sampling pattern was designed that integrates frequently sampled k-space centerline as self-gating signal and allows retrospective data-binning based on derived motion signal. Phantom and in-vivo results on 7 clinical indicated pediatric CHD patients show that the proposed self-gated MUSIC could potentially eliminates the need of external physiological signal for motion gating, has increased scan efficiency while maintaining or exceeding the image quality of the original MUSIC.
