The purpose was to develop and evaluate a novel approach to MR phase imaging of blood flow by combining radial cine phase contrast (radial cine-PC) with simultaneous multi-slice (SMS) technique to measure velocity in several slice planes simultaneously. Comparisons were made between SMS radial and SMS Cartesian 2D cine-PC and the velocity curves measured in cerebral vessels were similar between them. The higher acquisition efficiency of SMS radial cine PC allows for simultaneous cross-sectional hemodynamic quantification and may be useful for medical diagnoses.
