Conventional 2D cine requires long scan time and is not reformattable. Breathhold 3D cine suffers from reduced contrast and increased SSFP banding artifacts. This work developed a novel technique for free-breathing whole-heart cine imaging. Our results show that this new method is more robust than breathhold 3D cine and enables 3D imaging with isotropic resolution and thus offline reformatting.
