Dynamic contrast enhanced (DCE) MRI is a promising technique to quantitatively evaluate the inflammatory status of atherosclerosis noninvasively. However, its demanding sampling requirement leads to sacrifices in slide resolution, coverage, and/or temporal resolution in the applications to vessel wall imaging. In this work we designed accelerated dynamic T1-mapping technique using Low Rank Tensor (LRT) framework to achieve 3D high-resolution quantitative DCE of the carotid arteries.
