Preclinical 4D-flow measurements remain challenging due to long acquisition times. This study presents a retrospective analysis of 4D-flow measurements with a radial 3D phase contrast sequence in combination with an advanced compressed sensing reconstruction. We evaluate the impact of different undersampling factors regarding peak velocities, flow, wall shear stress values and streamline analysis. We could show that high acceleration factors for preclinical phase contrast imaging can be used without substantially degrading the quantitative results. Our findings might enable high resolution 4D-flow acquisitions in less than one hour.
