In addition to conventional signal averaging, compressed sensing (CS) can be applied to fluorine-19 MRI to improve its low signal-to-noise ratio. For a given acquisition time and CS algorithm, an N-averages N-fold-undersampled dataset results in higher sensitivity than a fully sampled non-averaged dataset. However, it is still unclear whether averaging changes the sensitivity to motion artifacts for an undersampled acquisition.We therefore tested the hypothesis that an N-averages N-fold undersampled acquisition is more robust against motion artifacts than a fully sampled non-averaged acquisition when both are reconstructed with CS.
