Real-time visualization is crucial to the success of MRI-guided minimally invasive cancer interventions. We have developed golden-angle (GA) ordered radial integrated-SSFP (iSSFP), which can suppress banding artifacts associated with bSSFP while maintaining similar contrast. However, the addition of the gradient spoiler in iSSFP removes the flow and motion compensation along the axis of the gradient. In this work, we analyze pelvic and abdominal iSSFP scans acquired in the axial, sagittal and coronal planes to investigate the effects of having the gradient along different directions with respect to motion/flow. GA radial iSSFP can potentially improve tissue contrast for real-time MRI-guided interventions, after careful consideration for the imaging plane, gradient spoiler direction, and motion/flow direction.
