Variational Multi-Task MRI Reconstruction: Joint Reconstruction, Registration and Super-Resolution

08/16/2019 ∙ by Veronica Corona, et al. ∙ 0

Motion degradation is a central problem in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). This work addresses the problem of how to obtain higher quality, super-resolved motion-free, reconstructions from highly undersampled MRI data. In this work, we present for the first time a variational multi-task framework that allows joining three relevant tasks in MRI: reconstruction, registration and super-resolution. Our framework takes a set of multiple undersampled MR acquisitions corrupted by motion into a novel multi-task optimisation model, which is composed of an L^2 fidelity term that allows sharing representation between tasks, super-resolution foundations and hyperelastic deformations to model biological tissue behaviors. We demonstrate that this combination yields to significant improvements over sequential models and other bi-task methods. Our results exhibit fine details and compensate for motion producing sharp and highly textured images compared to state of the art methods.
