An automatic postprocessing workflow for cardiac perfusion MRI was evaluated with perfusion studies of 75 subjects. Motion correction and image segmentation was performed both completely automatically and manually. Additionally the interobserver variability was investigated by manually segmenting 10 datasets by two different observers.
