Patients were referred for myocardial viability evaluation using 2D MDE and sshmde. Both sequences were evaluated and rated for perceived SNR, perceived CNR, myocardial suppression, infarct visualization, image artifacts, and overall image quality by a radiologist experienced in cardiac MRI. Preliminary results are promising using sshmde to decrease over all exam times while maintaining image quality to that of the conventional 2D MDE technique
