Phase contrast (PC) MRI is
a useful tool for assessing hemodynamic, but suffers from low data acquisition
efficiency. In this study we compared real-time PC MRI between Cartesian and
Radial undersampling trajectories. Our results show that both real-time MRI pulse
sequences yield velocity measurements that agree well with those produced by
reference breath-hold PC MRI pulse sequence. Compared with real-time MRI with
Cartesian sampling, Radial sampling produced images with fewer artifacts. This study demonstrates feasibility of
real-time PC MRI using radial k-space sampling and constrained reconstruction.
