Quantitative imaging of myocardial motion and strain is growing importance. 3D cine DENSE MRI can be advantageous for complete assessment of myocardium. One of the drawbacks of 3D cine DENSE MRI is a long acquisition time. Using the outer volume suppression property of stimulated echoes the scan time was reduced approximately by one third.
