A second moment nulling on diffusion gradients combined with ECG triggering for in-vivo myocardial diffusion weighted imaging was investigated its clinical feasibility. Uniform DWI signal was obtained with b-factor = 500 s/mm2 and clinically acceptable image quality with moderate signal non-uniformity was achieved up to b=800 s/mm2.
