This study presents the methodology for combining cine DENSE and cine SENC acquisitions to form an intramyocardial 3D strain tensor. The outcome is a single slice of strain data produced by combining two adjacent image planes of two dimensional cine DENSE with a single cine SENC acquisition. The technique was evaluated in four volunteers.
