The main challenge of using DCE-MRI in stroke in combination with advanced pharmacokinetic models is the need for high temporal resolution, whole-brain coverage and a low SNR (especially in small-animal MRI) of the DCE signal (compared to DSC, due to the BBB and low fractional blood volume in brain). In this pilot study we test if compressed sensing could help solve these challenges.
