4D Flow phase contrast MRI acquisitions inherently require a measure of background phase to remove phase contributions from non-velocity based components. The temporal dynamics of this background phase are not well understood. Consequently, the background phase may be measured too infrequently or too often for accurate and/or time efficient measurements. The purpose of this work was: 1) to measure the temporal dynamics of the background phase with high temporal resolution; and 2) to demonstrate methods of selecting time optimal background phase sampling strategies that improve the measurement efficiency of 4D Flow acquisitions.
