The feasibility of a 5-minute comprehensive whole heart protocol using highly accelerated parallel imaging was recently reported. In the current study, we have incorporated this 5-minute comprehensive protocol into routine clinical CMR examinations and have performed initial comparisons between a standard (predominantly 2D) protocol and the new 5-minute 3D comprehensive protocol arranged to occur within a single common scan session.
