Single Breath-Hold Whole-Heart MRA Using Variable Density Spirals and Localized Coil Demodulation

We have previously presented a single breath-hold whole-heart aquisition method that takes advantage of the localized sensitivity of a surface coil. We extend the method to increase the FOV by using an 8 channel cardiac coil and localized demodulation (PILS) without increasing the acquisition time.
