Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is often an ideal imaging modality for children of any age for any anatomy and for many pathologies. MRI sequences can be prescribed to produce high-resolution images of anatomical structures, characterize tissue composition, and detect physiological states and organ function. Shortening imaging sequences in any manner possible has been a topic of research and development in MRI since its emergence. Selection of imaging sequence parameters influences more than just the appearance and signal qualities of the imaged tissues; these details along with spatial encoding and data readout steps determine the time it takes to acquire an image. As each piece of image data is acquired and encoded with spatial and temporal information it is stored in k-space. As k-space is filled, either completely or partially, a diagnostic image or physiological data can be reconstructed. Shortening the length of time required for the readout step by efficiently filling k-space using compressed sensing and radial techniques is the subject of this manuscript.
