Stack-of-stars-type radial k-space trajectories employing golden-angle ordering have been becoming popular for either free breathing or navigator-gated volumetric T1-weighted imaging of the abdomen and heart. Most methods for compensating radial k-space trajectory errors induced by eddy currents and system delays are based either on the acquisition of calibration lines with opposite polarity or on the processing of approximately anti‐parallel spokes from the actual radial acquisition. This work shows that a trajectory correction based on a gradient system impulse response function improves image quality in high-resolution gated golden-angle radial Dixon imaging.
