Visualization of cardiovascular anatomy is important for diagnosis, risk stratification and planning of interventional procedures both in patients with congenital and non-congenital heart disease. This study proposes a novel free-breathing 3D whole-heart flow-independent approach for bright-blood visualization of coronary lumen and cardiac structures and for black-blood delineation of aortic, atrial, and coronary artery walls. The use of image-based navigation and non-rigid respiratory motion correction allows for 100% scan efficiency, predictable scan time and improved image sharpness.
