Cardiac stress MRI is a valuable diagnostic tool for heart disease. However, volumetric measurements are challenging because stress introduces rapid heartbeats and body movements. Real-time MRI is advantageous for this application due to its robustness to motion and ability for ungated imaging during free breathing. Here, we demonstrate an undersampled radial balanced steady state free precession (bSSFP) sequence to acquire real-time cine images at high spatial (1.7 mm) and temporal (40 ms) resolutions, applied in cardiac stress MRI. We show that, compared to standard breath-held bSSFP cine MRI, our technique provides more robust and reliable volumetric measurements.
