Paper Abstract

Parallel imaging reconstruction suffers from serious noise amplification at high accelerations that can be alleviated with regularization by imposing some prior information or constraints on image. Nevertheless, point-wise interpolation of missing k-space data restricts the use of prior information in k-space-based parallel imaging reconstructions like generalized auto-calibrating partial acquisitions (GRAPPA). In this study, a regularized k-space based parallel imaging reconstruction is presented. We first formulate the reconstruction of missing data within a patch as a linear inverse problem. Instead of exploiting prior information on image or its transform domain, the proposed method exploits the rank deficiency of structured matrix consisting of vectorized patches form entire k-space, which leads to a nuclear norm-regularized problem solved by the numeric algorithms iteratively. Brain imaging studies are performed, demonstrating that the proposed method is capable of mitigating noise at high accelerations in GRAPPA reconstruction.
