CINE and delayed enhancement imaging are widely used in cardiac MRI to evaluate function and viability, respectively. In this work, we demonstrate a new technique to acquire both function and viability in a short breath-hold of 4 seconds. The technique is based on highly-accelerated IR real-time CINE 2D bSSFP using compressed sensing to produce images with high spatial and temporal resolution. Subsequently, a registration and motion-propagation strategy is used to reconstruct CINE series for each of the acquired TI-contrasts. Based on multi-TI CINE series, it is possible to retrospectively visualize any TI-contrast as CINE or to reconstruct CINE pseudo-T1 maps.
