In this study the accuracy and reliability of a non-breath-hold real-time MRI-technique for the determination of functional cardiac parameters was evaluated. TSENSE examinations were performed without ECG-triggering and in free breathing on 30 individuals. Resulting cardiac function parameters were compared to the ones acquired with common ECQ-triggered CINE examinations which required a breath-hold for every acquired slice.
