Dynamic MRI Reconstruction with Motion-Guided Network
Proceedings of The 2nd International Conference on Medical Imaging with Deep Learning, PMLR 102:275-284, 2019.
Temporal correlation in dynamic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), such as cardiac MRI, is informative and important to understand motion mechanisms of body regions. Modeling such information into the MRI reconstruction process produces temporally coherent image sequence and reduces imaging artifacts and blurring. However, existing deep learning based approaches neglect motion information during the reconstruction procedure, while traditional motion-guided methods are hindered by heuristic parameter tuning and long inference time. We propose a novel dynamic MRI reconstruction approach called MODRN that unitizes deep neural networks with motion information to improve reconstruction quality. The central idea is to decompose the motion-guided optimization problem of dynamic MRI reconstruction into three components: dynamic reconstruction, motion estimation and motion compensation. Extensive experiments have demonstrated the effectiveness of our proposed approach compared to other state-of-the-art approaches.
