Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging (CMR) protocols can be extremely time consuming, expensive, and uncomfortable for the patient. The purpose of this study is to evaluated the acceleration performance for CINE CMR in-vivo scans using a 72 channel high-density coil array at 3 Tesla. We demonstrate highly accelerated CINE imaging within a single breath hold with acceptable SNR and minimal SENSE artifacts.
