Balanced steady-state free precession (bSSFP) is susceptible to outflowing signal because of it features no spoiling. This results in misregistrated artifacts that hamper the cardiac evaluations. We propose a method that tackles this issue in the acquisition process by spatially encoding for this outflowing signal to prevent it from projecting onto the imaged slice.
