Cardiac phantoms have been employed as testing and validating tools for newly developed techniques focused on sampling and reconstruction strategies. In this work, a 3D printed cardiac phantom was built to mimic the human heart. This was achieved through the integration of a peristaltic pump. Results depict the structural and functional behavior of the cardiac phantom, based on MR imaging on 1.5T scanners from 2 vendors. Ongoing work involves implementing the post-processing pipeline to correlate UI parameters with those derived from images. Future work focuses on employing PVA for preparing the heart model employing the 3D printing heart mold.
