Both compressed sensing (CS) and parallel imaging effectively reconstruct magnetic resonance images from undersampled data. Combining both methods enables imaging with greater undersampling than accomplished previously. This paper investigates the choice of a suitable sampling pattern to accommodate both CS and parallel imaging. A combined method named SpRING is described and extended to handle random undersampling, and both GRAPPA and SpRING are evaluated for uniform and random undersampling using both simulated and real data. For the simulated data, when the undersampling factor is large, SpRING performs better with random undersampling. However, random undersampling is not as beneficial to SpRING for real data with approximate sparsity.
