Title:
Dual-source RF transmission in cardiac SSFP imaging at 3 T: systematic spatial evaluation of image quality improvement compared to conventional RF transmission. 
Abstract:
The purpose of this investigation was to systematically evaluate the spatial distribution of image quality improvement with dual-source radiofrequency (RF) transmission in cardiac steady-state free precession sequences at 3.0 T. Imaging with and without dual-source RF transmission was performed in 30 patients. Contrast-to-noise ratio for the left ventricular myocardium was significantly higher using dual-source RF transmission, but improvement was not uniformly distributed. The posterior myocard...    »
