Incoherent under-sampling and compressed-sensing reconstructions can reduce the scan time for a 1.0 mm MPRAGE down to as little as 60-90 seconds. Such time-savings permit the acquisition of multiple scans per session, allowing the variation of image metrics and brain morphometrics around their mean values to be quantified. We compared MPRAGE scans accelerated up to eight-fold with a fully-sampled MPRAGE; and using SNR, cortical thickness and gray matter volume, assessed the optimal regularization in the compressed-sensing reconstruction for each acceleration level to best match the values from the fully-sampled scan.
