We seek to experimentally evaluate the point-spread-function (PSF) and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) in sequences accelerated using conventional SENSE and the recently developed Compressed Sensing-SENSE (CS-SENSE) with acceleration-factors (R) ranging from 0 to 28. Both CS-SENSE and SENSE had little effect on the PSF in the tested 3D turbo-spin-echo (TSE) sequences. CS-SENSE showed preserved SNR-per-unit-time even when R=28 (compared to R=0), while SENSE reduced SNR-per-unit-time significantly when R≥4. Fold-over artifacts were seen on SENSE images with R≥8, but not on CS-SENSE images for R=0-28. Overall, CS-SENSE seems to show clear advantages compared to SENSE, especially with high acceleration-factors.
