The 3D-NerveVIEW sequence with suppression of lipid and blood signals and a long echo time can obtain high-quality images for visualization of brachial plexus, while the long scan time may limit its clinical application. Compressed SENSE (CS) is a newly developed technique in MRI that enables accelerated acquisition with maintained image quality. By comparing results of 3D-NerveVIEW for brachial plexus imaging with acceleration by the conventional SENSE and the advanced CS with different acceleration factors. We found that the 3D-NerveVIEW for brachial plexus imaging with a CS acceleration factor of 4 can obtained favorable images within significantly reduced scan time.
