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.
