MR angiography is a useful technique for the diagnosis, monitoring and treatment planning of thoracic aortic disease. However, clinically used contrast-free approaches based on diaphragmatic navigator gating commonly result in long and unpredictable scan times. This study extends our previously introduced technique for non-contrast enhanced (non-CE) accelerated 3D Cartesian non-rigid motion-compensated whole-heart MR angiography for the visualization of the thoracic and suprarenal abdominal aorta from a short and efficient 3-minute scan. The proposed method was tested in five healthy subjects and two patients with cardiovascular disease, resulting in high-quality depiction of the aorta, holding promise for integration in clinical routine.
