Spatio-temporal MRI Reconstruction by Enforcing Local and Global Regularity via Dynamic Total Variation and Nuclear Norm Minimization
Proceedings of International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI), April 2016 (bib)

In this study, we propose a new spatio-temporal reconstruction scheme for the fast reconstruction of dynamic magnetic resonance imaging (dMRI) data from undersampled k-space measurements. To utilize both spatial and temporal redundancy in dMRI sequences, our method investigates the potential benefits of enforcing local spatial sparsity constraint on the difference to a reference image for each frame and additionally exploiting the low-rank property of global spatio-temporal signal via nuclear norm (NN) minimization. We present here an iterative algorithm that solves the convex optimization problem in an alternating fashion. The proposed method is tested on in-vivo 3D cardiac MRI and dynamic susceptibility contrast (DSC)-MRI brain perfusion datasets. In comparison to two state-of-the-art methods, numerical experiments demonstrate the superior performance of our method in terms of reconstruction accuracy.
