We present a
prospectively accelerated 3D black-blood sequence in conjunction with CS
reconstruction and show the feasibility of
3D high-resolution carotid vessel wall imaging. Results show that acceleration
in combination with CS reconstruction increased
SNR efficiency and resulted in improved vessel wall visibility as compared to
the full data acquisition. More importantly,
high-resolution imaging carotid imaging (0.4-0.5 mm) was shown feasible within a
clinically feasible imaging time of 4 min.
