MR Tissue Phase Mapping (TPM) is a powerful approach to assess left ventricular (LV) function. Conventional Cartesian acquisition-strategies with k-t-based parallel imaging acceleration allow the acquisition of a single slice within a breath-hold, but suffer from low spatial resolution. In this work a comparison with undersampled high-resolution spiral SPIRIT TPM for different trajectory designs within one breath-hold and free breathing Cartesian k-t-accelerated PEAK TPM is presented. High image quality, comparable peak velocity values and time to peaks of spiral SPIRIT TPM for high resolution within a breath-hold might enhance myocardial functional analysis.
