This study presents initial results for imaging of the great vessels with PC VIPR, a radial trajectory for ECG-gated 3D flow encoding of a large spherical volume with isotropic spatial resolution to provide information on both vessel geometry and quantitative flow of the great vessels. An improved view ordering scheme for retrospective ECG gating and the use of a temporal filter were implemented for improved cine imaging.
