The aim of this study was to develop SE-based cardiac diffusion MRI protocol with second order moment nulling, thus also compensating for acceleration, and to compare its performance to that of Stejskal-Tanner and bipolar gradients waveforms. Using this approach we have shown that it is feasible to quantify the transmural helix angle for the entire heart in five subjects.
