Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) scanning in patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI) is challenging due to potential arrhythmias and difficulties in breath-holding. New free-breathing and free-gating through-time radial GRAPPA sequences for real time imaging are available. In patients with acute ST elevation MI, we demonstrated the feasibility and accuracy of real time imaging with through-time radial GRAPPA and only 16 calibration data sets for the assessment of LV function in comparison to standard breath-hold techniques.
