Breathing motion is an important issue in MRI with continuously moving table (CMT). In this study the compressed sensing method is applied to an axial multi-slice CMT technique to acquire artifact free snapshots of the breathing motion. For a reduction factor of R = 2 images without significant motion or reconstruction artifacts are obtained.
