  robnote =      "The use of a gated acquisition is a problem in situations
                 with a poor ECG signal. An undersampled saturation
                 recovery radial turboFLASH pulse sequence was used in 7
                 subjects to acquire dynamic contrast-enhanced images
                 during free-breathing. A single saturation pulse was
                 followed by acquisition of 4-5 slices after a delay of ~40
                 msec.  Regional myocardial blood flow estimates
                 (MBFs) obtained using self-gated systole (0.64 +/- 0.26
                 ml/min/g), self-gated diastole (0.64 +/- 0.26 ml/min/g),
                 and ECG-gated scans (0.65 +/- 0.28 ml/min/g) were similar.
                 The MBF values
                 estimated from self-gated and gated methods were not
                 significantly different. CONCLUSION: The self-gated
                 technique for quantification of regional myocardial
                 perfusion matched ECG-gated perfusion measurements well in
                 normal subjects at rest. Self-gated systolic perfusion
                 values matched ECG-gated perfusion values better than did
                 diastolic values.",
