The abstract details the implementation of Fourier Decomposition (FD) at 3T in a clinical setting. FD is a non contrast perfusion and ventilation assessment technique based on TrueFISP which is know to have issues at 3T, especially with susceptibility, off-resonance, dielectric effects, etc. Numerous publications are available in literature which help in mitigating these issues with TrueFISP for cardiac imaging and body imaging at 3T. Adapting these techniques for FD is a simple extension at making this technique work at 3T while taking advantage of twice the SNR at 3T.
