Whole-heart magnetic resonance angiography is commonly performed with diaphragmatic navigator gating to compensate for respiratory motion, but this approach is inefficient as data must be reacquired when it is outside the acceptance window. We therefore developed and validated a self-gated respiratory motion compensation technique based on a radial phyllotaxis k-space trajectory in which all data are accepted throughout the respiratory cycle.
