A simulation framework is devised to analyse sequence parameters in radial first-pass perfusion for optimised imaging. A model containing left-ventricular myocardium, bloodpool and defect was radially sampled in 2D and 3D under multiple sequence parameters variations, tested with differing imaging environments. Automatic measures of sharpness, signal variation and CNR were made on the N=1016 simulation reconstructed images and results of interest are presented.
