Currently, cine MRI is the gold standard for evaluating cardiac function. Nevertheless, in today’s practice, slices need to be acquired at different oblique, and 12-16 short-axis slices needs to be acquired for sufficient ventricular coverage. The same limits apply to hemodynamics-related assessment of valvular and vascular performance, for which multiple 2D oblique flow measurements need to be acquired. In this abstract, we present a combined 3D Cine/4D Flow accelerated cardiac imaging technique with cloud computing, which significantly reduces the scan and processing time, reduces the scan’s complexity, alleviates misregistration problems, and increases productivity.
