TL;DR: This paper proposes a dual-domain framework with cross-iteration residual connections for accelerated MRI reconstruction, which demonstrates superior performance.
Abstract: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is widely employed for diagnostic tests in neurology. However, the utility of MRI is largely limited by its long acquisition time. Acquiring fewer k-space data in a sparse manner is a potential solution to reducing the acquisition time, but it can lead to severe aliasing reconstruction artifacts. In this paper, we present a novel Dual-Domain Cross-Iteration Squeeze and Excitation Network (DD-CISENet) for accelerated sparse MRI reconstruction. The information of k-spaces and MRI images can be iteratively fused and maintained using the Cross-Iteration Residual connection (CIR) structures. This study included 720 multi-coil brain MRI cases adopted from the open-source fastMRI Dataset \cite{zbontar2018fastmri}. Results showed that the average reconstruction error by DD-CISENet was 2.28 ± 0.57%, which outperformed existing deep learning methods including image-domain prediction (6.03 ± 1.31%, p < 0.001), k-space synthesis (6.12 ± 1.66%, p < 0.001), and dual-domain feature fusion approaches (4.05 ± 0.88%, p < 0.001).
