3D image-based navigators (iNAVs) are effective for tracking motion in free-breathing cardiac MRI, though they require a long acquisition window. In this work, we present Segmented Twin-resolution Acquisition of Cones trajectorY (STACY) and the concept of coalesced image navigators. In STACY, different segments of a 3D low-resolution cones trajectory are collected across heartbeats as navigators. Coalesced image navigators are reconstructed by merging data from similarly translated heartbeatsh, leading to better conditioned images than iNAVs from undersampled data collected over individual heartbeats.
