High-resolution MRI plays an important role in neuro-oncological exams in children. However, high-quality imaging remains challenging due to long scan times. In this study, we evaluate the compressed SENSE technique that employs compressed sensing with coil sensitivity information in a dedicated pediatric neuro-oncological scan protocol in children with brain tumor. The resulted image quality and scan duration are compared with the conventional techniques, showing promise for a wide adaption in the clinical routine practice.
