3D-DTI are often used in ex vivo imaging to achieve superior spatial resolution and to map fine white matter structure. However, image acquisition time is long especially when many diffusion directions are used to better define orientation profiles and resolve crossing fibers. In this study we apply a new imaging acceleration technique – Partial Fourier Compressed Sensing (PFCS) on DTI acceleration. We demonstrated PFCS provide satisfactory reconstruction with only half of the raw data while retaining fine anatomical details on DTI parameter maps.
