Automated Cardiac Self-Gated Radial CMRI
Distortions in electrocardiogram (ECG) signals affect the image quality and increase scan time of Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging (CMRI) exams. This study proposes an alternative method of acquiring CMRI cine images in mouse heart using a self-gated Ultra-short Echo Time (UTE) protocol. In our method, a bandpass filter and a lowpass filter are adopted to extract the self-gated signals from the center of the raw no-gated k-space measurements, A live mouse has been tested as the example to verify the method. The results demonstrated that this method could be used for reconstruction of the no-gated UTE CMRI measurements without using of external ECG signals.
