Ultra-fast real time imaging allows cine imaging of the whole heart without gating or breath-holding in around 1 minute. Here clinical cardiac metrics are evaluated and compared with those from a standard clinical acquisition in normal volunteers. We find agreement adequate for clinical use. The real time approach is evaluated in a case of atrial fibrillation and found to provide a more robust evaluation of cardiac parameters in a shorter acquisition time.
