A free-breathing water/fat motion corrected 3D grey blood phase sensitive inversion recovery (PSIR) late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) technique that achieves whole heart coverage and provided excellent agreement with 2D grey blood LGE MRI has been recently proposed. However, contrast washout due to the relatively long scan time of ~10 minutes may impact scar detection and limit spatial resolution. We therefore sought to investigate the feasibility of high-resolution slow infusion motion-corrected 3D grey blood PSIR-LGE in comparison with a conventional clinically used breath-held 2D grey blood PSIR-LGE MRI technique. Here we report first qualitative and quantitative results.
