This study investigates free breathing motion corrected (MOCO) phase sensitive inversion recovery imaging of delayed myocardial enhancement. It compares this technique to current standards methods of TrueFISP and TurboFLASH (TFL) sequences in 45 patients. PSIR MOCO is found to be equal or superior in image quality, diagnostic confidence and detection and qualitative evaluation of delayed myocardial enhancement in all cases.
