Stack of stars trajectory with golden angle ordering provides better motion robustness than Cartesian imaging for abdominal MRI. However, image reconstruction for non-Cartesian datasets is usually time-consuming, especially for datasets with high-density coil arrays. While additional motion correction methods can improve image quality for stack of stars, they often further increase the reconstruction time. In this work, we aim to reduce the reconstruction time for stack of stars using coil compression and improve motion robustness with a similar reconstruction time using soft gating.
