For banding-artifact reduction in cardiac cine bSSFP imaging, we present a highly accelerated frequency-modulated sequence that can be used to acquire three phase-cycles within a short breath-hold. A reconstruction that exploits redundancies between the phase-cycles enables the high acceleration. Acquiring more phase-cycles facilitates a flatter spectral profile after phase-cycle combination. We formulate a regularization term for the reconstruction that is general to any number of phase-cycles to consistently achieve good image quality in multiple subjects.
