In this work, we present an extension of k-t PCA taking into account temporal correlations in spatial compartments. The compartment method is shown to significantly outperform conventional k-t PCA at high reduction factors. Using the approach up to 10- fold net acceleration of single-directional phase-contrast velocity mapping in the ascending and descending aorta is demonstrated with excellent agreement relative to fully sampled data even if only a single receive coil is available.
