In ultra-high-field MRI, cardiac gating is problematic because electrocardiography is prone to magnetohydrodynamic artifacts and pulse oximetry suffers from signal loss during long examinations. The goal of this work is to investigate practical feasibility of cardiac gating based on a video from the sole of the foot that is leaned to a glass plate. We combined this novel setup with an open-source software for video-based cardiac gating (https://github.com/nspi/vbcg) and performed ultra-high-field non-enhanced angiography in one volunteer. As reference, we performed pulse oximetry gating and comparison of maximum intensity projection images shows a similar image quality. Future work will evaluate the feasibility of this novel cardiac gating method in a larger cohort.
