We developed a realtime strain encoding technique using EPI readout with centric reordering and parallel imaging acceleration. This technique was tested in a strain phantom and normal volunteers to measure through-plane left ventricular strain. Quantified strains correlated well with fully sampled k-space acquisitions. The proposed technique allows larger field-of-view (FOV) and provides superior coverage of both left (LV) and right ventricles (RV) while maintaining equivalent temporal and spatial resolution as the fully sampled sequence.
