Despite its high potential in significant scan time reduction and its immense popularity, MRI applications of compressed sensing (CS) have yet to reach daily clinical usage. With a modest acceleration factor and with a careful selection of the intended application, the CS can be fully implemented on todays clinical MR scanners. The current work successfully demonstrates this with the Time-of-Flight application (TOFu), achieving factor of 2 scan time reduction (net acceleration 3.8) over the conventional intracranial TOF (acceleration factor of 2 from parallel MRI) without compromises in image quality.
