A new dynamic sequence is presented that combines CAIPIRINHA acceleration, Dixon fat-saturation and TWIST view sharing with a VIBE sequence. Dynamic imaging of the abdomen has been evaluated with this technique at 3T with a spatial resolution of 1.2x1.2x3mm and a temporal resolution of 2.9s/3D data set.
