Paper Abstract

In recent years, compressed sensing (CS) has attracted considerable attention in areas such as rapid magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. Signal sparsity is an essential condition for compressed sensing. In this work, a multi-scale sparsifying transform based on the Fresnel transform (FREBAS) is adopted in order to improve the quality of CS images. The experimental results demonstrate that by increasing the sparsity of the image in the FREBAS transform domain, curved features in MR images can be more faithfully reconstructed than is possible using the traditional wavelet transform or curvelet transform particularly for low sampling rates in k-space. In addition, proposed method is robust to the selection of sampling trajectory of NMR signal.
