A radial trajectory with a three-dimensional sector-wise golden-angle (3D-SWIG) profile ordering optimized for retrospective ECG-based binning is presented. Data are acquired in patches using a low-distorting and area-preserving mapping from a cube to a sphere. Within each patch, the readouts are ordered according to the double golden-angle scheme. By acquiring one patch per heartbeat, k-space uniformity is guaranteed even after ECG-binning, resulting in reduced radial streak artifacts.
