In this study the dynamic filling of the coronary arteries in mice was visualized by using a cryogenically cooled surface coil for SNR improvement and by using a self-gated method with full heart coverage which corrects for cardiac and respiratory motions. The results presents volume-targeted cine-MIPs.
