Due to respiratory motion, cardiac imaging is performed during breath holding. Breath holding can be strenuous, or even impossible, for patients with heart disease. We suggest a method for respiratory self-gating using a Golden Angle radial k-space trajectory and principal component analysis. Radial trajectories sample the middle of k-space, which corresponds to the large structure content of the image, each repetition time. The respiratory motion can be detected from the raw k-space data and the motion signal can be used to perform retrospective respiratory gating.
