We aimed to increase spatial resolution while maintaining scanning time for 3D-T1 weighted imaging by on-scanner undersampling at 7T. A 3DT1-weighted structural scan with a resolution of 0.5 mm3 was acquired with 4 times variable poisson disc compressed sensing (CS) undersampling. For comparison, scans with resolutions of 0.5 and 0.7 mm3 were acquired, with SENSE undersampling adapted to match scanning time.The CS-reconstructed scan showed no streaking artifacts, was less hampered by noise in deep brain regions, had better contrast between gray matter and CSF and less partial voluming effects.
