Cardiac MRF (cMRF) has recently emerged as a method of rapidly characterizing myocardial tissue. It has been shown to be robust to different and varying heart rates with high reproducibility in T1 and T2 regardless of the length and regularity of the cardiac cycle. While these techniques have been validated in healthy volunteers, patient studies have yet to be performed. Therefore, in this abstract, we present the first use of cMRF in a patient population - heart transplant recipients - and show initial results.
