Flow MRI of the carotid arteries has
emerged as an important imaging field during the last decade and has been shown
valuable for the assessment of hemodynamics in the context of atherosclerosis. In
this study a 2D flow acquisition was accelerated using random undersampling and
compressed sensing reconstruction. For validation of the reconstructed flow a phantom
experiment was performed at different acceleration factors followed by an in
vivo scan of the carotid arteries.
