Motion corrected SSFP is an investigational prototype
sequence which includes fully automated inline non-rigid
motion compensation. Our aim was to compare image
quality and scar characterisation using this technique
compared with gold standard (single shot SSFP and
breath-held GRE) sequences. We found that overall image
quality is significantly improved in the data analyzed.
