Parallel Compressive Sensing in a Hybrid Space: Application in Interventional MRI Conference Paper uri icon


  • Recently, susceptibility based positive contrast MRI technique emerged as an effective method of visualizing the small MR compatible devices, such as brachytherapy seeds. One of the challenges associated with this method is the long scan time. In this work, we present an accelerated susceptibility based positive contrast MR imaging method, in which the susceptibility map can be generated from an under-sampled data. We use a combination of parallel imaging (GRAPPA) and compressive sensing (CS) technique in a hybrid k-space. The results in brachytherapy seeds imaging show that 3-D high-quality images can be achieved at an acceleration factor up to 4, which can decrease the scan time from 4 minutes to 1.4 minutes.
