4D flow MRI is a powerful tool for visualization and quantification of blood flow. Repeated acquisition of 4 echoes with different velocity encoding is needed to measure flow in 3D. In this study, we propose a new ktv-ARC reconstruction by incorporating correlations between velocity encoded echoes (v) to the spatiotemporal correlations (kt). The error behavior of the method was analyzed on retrospectively undersampled in vivo cardiac data and resulted in more accurate velocity images with ktv-ARC compared to kt-ARC.
