Conventional T2-weighted images using two-dimensional (2D) fast-spin-echo (FSE) are commonly used in clinical scanning of bladder, with a drawback of high missing rate. This study compared the BCa detection rate between compressed SENSE accelerated 3D and conventional 2D FSE T2WI within the same patients. The results showed that the accelerated 3D FSE T2-weighted acquisitions had excellent performance at detecting lesions smaller than 3cm and on the uncommon site of bladder wall.
