Continuous AT was used for cardiac synchronization of MR-thermometry with on-line signal filtering, calibration, and triggering. Experiments in a porcine animal model, where AT-trig was compared to ECG triggering, showed that AT-trig could potentially serve as alternative cardiac triggering strategy in situations where ECG triggering is not effective.
