Dark-blood imaging is a promising tool for vessel wall assessment in cardiovascular disease. Here we introduce a novel water/fat DANTE-prepared sequence for 3D dark-blood imaging of the thoracic and abdominal aorta. The sequence integrates image navigation to enable respiratory motion correction resulting in a predictable scan time. Results from healthy subjects show the feasibility of the sequence for depicting the aortic wall with high-resolution with an overall short scan of ~6 minutes.
