Balanced SSFP Golden Angle radial imaging uses a rapidly varying gradient scheme and thus is susceptible to image distortion caused by gradient delays and eddy currents. We propose that storing a history of the gradient waveforms in each axis can enable us to better predict our true k-space coordinates during sampling. We use the gradient system impulse response function to predict k-space coordinates and demonstrate reduced image distortion (shading and streaking) in a phantom and in vivo when utilizing the gradient waveform history. This method will be useful for dynamic and real-time imaging with Golden Angle balanced SSFP imaging schemes.
