Modern imaging techniques for Dynamic Contrast Enhanced MR Imaging (DCE-MRI) can achieve high temporal resolution by exploiting correlation between different time-points in the reconstruction. In order to reduce the vast number of images as well as the reconstruction time while keeping the relevant clinical information, we propose to use a variable temporal resolution for the reconstructed time-points. Specifically, this is implemented for Golden-Angle Radial Sparse Parallel DCE-MRI and illustrated for prostate and liver imaging. In these applications the time resolution is critical in the initial phase after contrast injection and less important for the pre-contrast and later phases.
