    Abstract

    SMASH (SiMultaneous Acquisition of Spatial Harmonics) was recently introduced as a novel rapid-imaging technique. The SMASH technique uses a partially parallel acquisition strategy, using spatial information from a radiofrequency coil array to accelerate imaging. This study constitutes the first application of SMASH to cardiac magnetic resonance imaging. The increased imaging speed provided by SMASH was used to obtain images with reduced breathhold duration, enhanced spatial resolution, and increased temporal resolution in healthy volunteers. The results obtained demonstrate the feasibility and potential clinical utility of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging using the SMASH technique.
