Robust image quality is critical for reliable detection and evaluation of myocardial oxygenation changes with blood-oxygen-level-dependent (BOLD) imaging. Recently, balanced Steady-State Free Precession (bSSFP) methods have been employed to overcome image quality limitations associated with myocardial BOLD methods. However, the long TRs required for optimal BOLD contrast can lead to unwanted flow/motion artifacts, ultimately compromising image quality. In this work we evaluate the utility of 2D first-order motion compensation scheme to minimize flow/motion artifacts in cardiac phase-resolved bSSFP BOLD imaging.
