The parallel imaging technique using localized gradients (PatLoc) system has the degree of freedom to encode spatial information using multiple surface gradient coils. Previous PatLoc reconstructions focused on acquisitions at moderate accelerations. Compressed sensing (CS) is the emerging theory to achieve imaging acceleration beyond the Nyquist limit if the image has a sparse representation and the data can be acquired randomly and reconstructed nonlinearly. Here we apply CS to PatLoc image reconstruction to achieve further accelerated image reconstruction. Specifically, we compare the reconstructions between PatLoc and traditional linear gradient systems at acceleration rates in an under-determined system.
