Paper Abstract

Patient motion during scanning will introduce artifacts in the reconstructed image in MRI imaging. Periodically Rotated Overlapping Parallel Lines with Enhanced Reconstruction (PROPELLER) MRI is an effective technique to correct for motion artifacts. The iterative method that combine the preconditioned conjugate gradient (PCG) algorithm with nonuniform fast Fourier transformation (NUFFT) operations is applied to PROPELLER MRI in the paper. But the drawback of the method is long reconstruction time. In order to make it viable in clinical situation, parallel optimization of the iterative method on modern GPU using CUDA is proposed. The simulated data and in vivo data from PROPELLER MRI are respectively reconstructed in order to test the method. The experimental results show that image quality is improved compared with gridding method using the GPU based iterative method with compatible reconstruction time.
