This work presents a framework for respiratory motion-resolved multi-point 4D Flow MRI (MP 5D Flow MRI) of mean and turbulent velocities in 4 minutes using a combination of Cartesian Golden angle undersampling, data-driven motion detection and locally low-rank imaging reconstruction. In an imaging study with 9 volunteers, 7-point 5D Flow MRI was compared to a standard, navigator-gated 4-point 4D Flow MRI parallel imaging protocol. Results demonstrate that flow fields from MP 5D Flow MRI in end-expiration agree well with 4D Flow MRI data while scan time was reduced by a factor of 4.5. In addition, MP 5D Flow MRI provides higher accuracy for low velocities and allows assessing TKE over a larger dynamic range compared to 4D Flow MRI.
