[Abstract] Compressed sensing (CS) is a technique that significantly shortens image acquisition time by undersampling the k-space. Simultaneously, it employs advanced algorithms to reconstruct the original signal, ensuring the quality of the reconstructed image. Applying CS to MRI can accelerate imaging speed while maintaining image quality, effectively reducing artifacts, and promoting rapid disease diagnosis. This article starts with the application origin of CS technology, aiming to explore the current clinical applications of CS technology in whole-body magnetic resonance imaging examinations, including brain, heart, vascular, and musculoskeletal imaging. It emphasizes the potential value of CS in the field of medicine, providing crucial insights for future clinical practices.
