Six-Fold Acceleration of High-Spatial Resolution 3D SPACE MRI of the Knee Through Incoherent k-Space Undersampling and Iterative Reconstruction—First Experience

FritzPurpose: The aim of this study was to prospectively test the hypothesis that 6-fold acceleration of a 3-dimensional (3D) turbo spin echo (TSE) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) pulse sequence with k-space undersampling and iterative reconstruction is feasible for fast high spatial resolution MRI of the knee, while yielding similar image quality and diagnostic performance when compared with a conventional 2-dimensional (2D) TSE MRI standard.
