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.
