In this study we compare free-breathing balanced SSFP cine sequences (radial vs. Cartesian K space reconstruction) in a short series of consecutive patients. Radial acquisitions have the potentiality to be one of the possible strategies in patients who are unable to breath-hold or who have significant arrhythmias where segmented SSFP cine imaging is challenging and suboptimal for left and right ventricle function assessment.
