For increasing temporal resolution in MRI, several view sharing (VS) techniques have been developed where high spatial frequencies are not sampled for all time frames and data from the different time frames are combined. In this study the VS concept was applied to share data between different slice positions for axial continuously moving table (CMT) acquisitions. By varying the patient table velocity the degree of VS could be flexibly adjusted. The feasibility of CMT VS was tested for the application to CMT Time-of-Flight venography of the peripheral vessels.
