Compressed sensing and parallel imaging are combined into a single joint reconstruction to accelerate Proton Echo Planar Spectroscopic Imaging (PEPSI). The method exploits the joint sparsity in the sensitivity-encoded images to achieve higher accelerations than for coil-by-coil compressed-sensing or parallel imaging alone. We demonstrate the feasibility of simulated 4-fold acceleration for human brain PEPSI using a standard 12-channel array coil.
