In this abstract we will investigate the feasibility of dual phase cardiac whole heart MRI to obtain Coronary Magnetic Resonance Angiography (CMRA) at end-systole and mid-diastole in children with Congenital Heart Diseases (CHD). This technique allows optimal coronary artery visualization by choosing the best rest period of the heart without any scan time penalty.
