Compressed sensing (cs) has the potential to shorten scan acquisition time. This time savings may help to reduce patient burden, MR artifacts due to motion, and cost for repeat acquisitions. A key open question is whether time-saving cs T1w structural images will yield quantitative morphometric estimates comparable to traditional longer sequences. To test this, images were acquired for numerous cs T1w image variations across two independent datasets. Structural estimates were compared within- and between-subjects to assess scan stability and the effect of acceleration. x6 cs acceleration (~86s scan) was sufficient to yield comparable morphometrics for most measures in typical applications.
