Conventional viability imaging protocols can result in long table-top times thus limiting patient throughput in a busy practice. Parallel imaging and single-shot strategies can be employed to reduce overall acquisition times. In this study, we implemented real-time cine TrueFISP with TSENSE and delayed enhanced single-shot IR TrueFISP, in a group of 22 patients. This resulted in a significant reduction in overall imaging time and produced comparable results to conventional segmented techniques.
