A model-based dynamic MRI called k-t BLAST/SENSE has drawn significant attention from the MR imaging community because of its improved spatio-temporal resolution. Recently, we showed that the k-t BLAST/SENSE corresponds to the special case of a new dynamic MRI algorithm called k-t FOCUSS that is optimal from a compressed sensing perspective. The main(More)
The dynamic MR imaging of time-varying objects, such as beating hearts or brain hemodynamics, requires a significant reduction of the data acquisition time without sacrificing spatial resolution. The classical approaches for this goal include parallel imaging, temporal filtering and their combinations. Recently, model-based reconstruction methods called k-t(More)
A compressed sensing dynamic MR technique called k-t FOCUSS (k-t FOCal Underdetermined System Solver) has been recently proposed. It outperforms the conventional k-t BLAST/SENSE (Broad-use Linear Acquisition Speed-up Technique/SENSitivity Encoding) technique by exploiting the sparsity of x-f signals. This paper applies this idea to radial trajectories for(More)
Compressed sensing has become an extensive research area in MR community because of the opportunity for unprecedented high spatio-temporal resolution reconstruction. Because dynamic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) usually has huge redundancy along temporal direction, compressed sensing theory can be effectively used for this application. Historically,(More)
Cardiac T(2) mapping is a promising method for quantitative assessment of myocardial edema and iron overload. We have developed a new multiecho fast spin echo (ME-FSE) pulse sequence for breath-hold T(2) mapping with acceptable spatial resolution. We propose to further accelerate this new ME-FSE pulse sequence using k-t focal underdetermined system solver(More)
Functional MRI (fMRI) has been widely accepted as a standard tool to study the function of brain. However, because of the limited temporal resolution of MR scanning, researchers have experienced difficulties in various event related cogni-tive studies which usually require higher temporal resolution than the current acquisition protocol. Even if several(More)
A model based approach called k-t BLAST/SENSE, has drawn significant attentions from MR imaging community due to its improved spatio-temporal resolution. Recently, we showed that k-t BLAST/SENSE corresponds to the special case of a new dynamic MRI algorithm called k-t FOCUSS that is asymptotically optimal from compressed sensing perspective. The k-t FOCUSS(More)
This study examined the performance and photo-bias stability of double-channel ZnSnO/InZnO (ZTO/IZO) thin-film transistors. The field-effect mobility (μFE) and photo-bias stability of the double-channel device were improved by increasing the thickness of the front IZO film (t(int)) compared to the single-ZTO-channel device. A high-mobility (approximately(More)
