abstract

  • The rest period for coronary arteries in the cardiac cycle varies substantially from patient to patient, which may cause quality to be inconsistent in current coronary MR angiography. A cardiac motion image prior to coronary data acquisition (preimage) may be used to estimate the optimal duration and timing in the cardiac cycle for coronary MR angiography.
