The aim of the study was to acquire 3D radially sampled k-space data of a human torso without breath hold and prospective cardiac triggering. Respiration and cardiac pulsation were continuously recorded simultaneously with MR imaging over a time frame of 1 h. Retrospective data motion triggering was used to reconstruct 8 up to 10 different respiration phases and 12 up to 20 different cardiac cycle phases, resulting in 96 up to 200 different phase combinations. Image quality was evaluated based on SNR, CNR and under sampling artifacts.
