Multiband accelerated cine SSFP of the heart is demonstrated using blipped gradients for controlled aliasing of simultaneous slices. The benefit of using this method over the more complex phase cycling RF multiband pulse sets is that the frequency response, and thus banding artefacts, remain unchanged. Here we demonstrate up to MB4 acceleration of full short-axis stacks, sufficient to cover the left ventricle within a single breath-hold.
