We developed a novel respiratory motion compensation
method utilizing a pencil-beam diaphragmatic navigator
for free-breathing steady-state free precession imaging
of the heart. Image quality and volumetric data with
this method was comparable to the standard breath-hold
technique and superior to the multiple signal averages
approach in patients.
