For banding-free cardiac cine bSSFP imaging, we present a non-Cartesian accelerated frequency-modulated sequence that acquires three phase-cycles within a short breath-hold. A projection-reconstruction trajectory is used and data is also acquired on the rewinds, enabling generation of a B0 field map using BMART. This facilitates field-map combination of the phase-cycle images, which results in more homogeneous blood pool and reduced signal contributions from out-of-slice spins than root-sum-of-squares.
