High-resolution 3D-MERGE technique based black-blood imaging has been reported to quantitatively measure carotid atherosclerotic plaque morphology and tissue composition, and receive more and more clincial concerns. However, it brings about relative long time consuming due to the use of motion-sensitized preparation, which can increase the probability of motion artifacts due to swallowing, respiration or neck movements. In our previous research, compressed sensing (CS) is used to improve temporal resolution by reconstructing images from a dramatically small number of data without introducing severe image artifacts[1]. The purposes of this study are: (1) to determine the reproducibility of the fast 3D-MERGE imaging using CS reconstruction. (2) to determine the consistency of this method when using different CS acceleration factors.
