In this work we propose an alternative acquisition framework for functional lung imaging using matrix pencil (MP) decomposition (a derivative of Fourier decomposition method) based on partially spoiled ultra-fast steady-state free-precession (ps-ufSSFP) imaging. We showed that MP decomposition is feasible in healthy volunteers using ps-ufSSFP at 1.5T and 3T. Hence, ps-ufSSFP can be a viable solution for the application of MP MRI at 3T where imaging with balanced ufSSFP can be problematic due to the occurrence of off-resonance artifacts.
