Deep learning reconstruction (DLR) is a novel denoising processing. We applied DLR to a compressed sensing (CS) sequence of orbital thin-slice fat-suppressed T2-weighted imaging with one number of excitation (NEX). A CS sequence with one NEX without DLR and a conventional sequence with two NEX were also obtained to evaluate the denoising performance. Combined usage of DLR with CS reduced image noise and improved the image quality of the optic nerves and the medial rectus muscles, while achieving shorter acquisition time, compared with the CS and the conventional sequences without DLR.
