The feasibility of applying compressed sensing methods to hyperpolarized 3He apparent diffusion coefficient measurements was investigated. Fully sampled 3D k-space data from one healthy subject and three COPD patients were undersampled and reconstructed by compressed sensing methods. We expect that the method can be used to either decrease scan time (breath-hold) or increase spatial resolution which will be especially important in longitudinal studies of lung disease progression.
