We adopted several temporal acceleration methods to investigate the feasibility of accelerating black blood vessel wall DCE-MRI in small animal with early lesion in the abdominal artery. Both numerical simulation data and in-vivo data were adopted in this study. The results showed that the higher temporal resolution due to the acceleration would provide more accurate kinetic parameter evaluation without sacrificing much image quality.
