3D CMR perfusion imaging enables whole ventricular coverage at the same cardiac cycle permitting quantification of ischemic burden of patients being evaluated for coronary artery disease. Current 3D techniques have limited spatial-temporal resolution. We developed an efficient outer-volume suppressed 3D Stack-of-Spiral perfusion sequence with motion-guided compressed sensing reconstruction which can acquire 20 partitions with 2 mm in-plane and 4 mm through-plane resolution with a temporal foot print of 180 ms. A pilot study of 10 subjects using this technique demonstrates clinically acceptable image quality.
