Compressed Sensing with parallel imaging can allow for an accelerated anatomical imaging protocol for imaging patients with brain tumors, saving ~10 minutes of scan time over standard clinical protocols when incorporated into 3D T2-FLAIR, and 3D T1-weighted pre- and post- contrast imaging. We first determined the optimal undersampling pattern and acceleration for CS T1-weighted IR-SPGR sequences and then evaluated the quality of the images and lesion definition in patients with brain tumors. This shortened anatomical imaging protocol has the potential to reduce the frequency of motion artifacts and can allow time for more advanced, therapy specific imaging to be acquired.
