A technique for free-breathing 2D cardiac cine MRI is proposed. Respiratory motion is monitored in real time using the respiratory bellows signal, and the diminishing variance algorithm is used to reacquire motion-corrupted data. The proposed technique is demonstrated in free-breathing volunteer scans, acquiring a stack of short-axis images covering the entire left ventricle.
