We implemented a high temporal resolution 3D black-blood protocol for DCE imaging of atherosclerotic plaques using a combination of a radial stack-of-stars sampling scheme, motion-sensitised (iMSDE) blood suppression and CS reconstruction. Using this approach, 3D black-blood DCE images with a temporal resolution of 12s could be obtained. In this work, we show the application of our method in patients with femoral and carotid artery plaques.
