In this work a helical bSSFP-sequence with a golden angle acquisition for abdominal imaging is presented. The technique allows continuously shifting the image plane along the slice axis. By this a continuous 3D volume is covered. Using sliding-window reconstruction slices of arbitrary positions can be obtained. The in-vivo applications on abdominal imaging during free breathing are demonstrated.
