Recently, we proposed a novel LGE approach that could help radiologists/technicians automatically specify TI values .We propose a PSIR-specific TI optimization that could help automatically nulls TI while maintaining the scar-to-myocardium contrast. As a TFE preparation pulse is user defined on scanner, clinical application is readily available on current MR systems without the need for extensive optimizations, software modifications, and/or additional training.
