Dynamic contrast enhanced (DCE) MRI of atherosclerosis is gaining increasing interest for the characterization of vulnerable atherosclerotic plaques. In this study we present our preliminary experience in applying compressed sensing reconstruction to DCE-MRI of atherosclerosis, with the aim of accelerating tissue acquisition to achive higher in-plane spatial resolution and tissue coverage.
