Fourier Decomposition pulmonary MRI similarly to other proton techniques suffers from a low signal to noise ratio in the lung parenchyma and would benefit from being performed at higher field strength. However the bSSFP sequence used in the standard approach is not well suited for this due to its high dependency on T2*. This submission works on improving FD MRI at higher field strength by finding a replacement for the standard sequence.
