MR quantitative imaging have been shown to be promising markers for detecting early degeneration and predicting disease progression in musculoskeletal (MSK) imaging due to its relatively independence of scanners/protocols. However, the long acquisition time and associated low resolution quantitative imaging have impeded their wide applications in clinical trials and practice. Recently compressed sensing and parallel imaging based acceleration methods have shown promise to address these challenges such that the quantitative imaging can be translated into clinical practice. Despite the extensive studies in other applications such as brain imaging, MR quantitative imaging in MSK has been overlooked. This course will teach some acceleration methods combining compressed sensing and parallel imaging and show their applications in MSK imaging.
