A method for enabling a balanced steady-state free precession 3D stack-of-stars approach to whole-heart first-pass myocardial perfusion imaging is investigated. Consideration is made of the impact of potential off-resonance effects at 3T and sequence-based modifications to rectify this are examined. Demonstration of the feasibility of this approach is then performed in-vivo.
