The use of a free breathing motion corrected phase sensitive inversion recovery (FB MOCO PSIR) sequence to evaluate delayed enhancement (DE) in ischemic heart disease has been validated at 1.5T. In this study 22 patients underwent FB MOCO PSIR at 3T and it was found to be equal or superior to non motion corrected methods in detection of both ischemic and non-ischemic DE patterns. Initial experience suggests that it is safe alternative to standard methods at 3T and may be benficial in patients who are unable to breathold effectively.
