Quantitative 3D myocardial perfusion is a clinically realistic goal and this work further develops and combines several innovative sequence designs to achieve this goal. These developments include an optimized 3D stack of stars readout (150ms per beat), acquisition and T2* correction of an arterial input function, tailored saturation pulse design and potential whole heart coverage at both systole and diastole at heart rates up to 109 bpm. Implementation and quantitative perfusion results are shown for healthy volunteers and a patient with known coronary disease.
