In this paper, we explores a rapid imaging method based on a proposed random-like trajectory for compressed sensing (CS) which requires the sampling trajectory should satisfy the Restricted Isometry Property (RIP) condition. In the existing CS literature, the attentions are on randomly sampling points on the conventional trajectories. However, the proposed(More)
Compressed sensing (CS) has been used in dynamic MRI to reduce the data acquisition time. Several sparsifying transforms have been investigated to sparsify the dynamic image sequence. Most existing works have studied linear transformations only. In this paper, we proposed a novel kernel-based compressed sensing approach to dynamic MRI. The method represents(More)
This study aimed to explore changes in hepatic and renal function indices in chronic hepatitis C (CHC) patients treated with direct-acting antivirals (DAAs). Forty-three CHC patients treated with sofosbuvir (SOF)-containing regimens were enrolled. At the end of treatment, the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) level was significantly decreased and(More)
Photoacoustic-computed microscopy (PACM) is an emerging technology that employs thousands of optical foci to provide wide-field high-resolution images of tissue optical absorption. A major limitation of PACM is the slow imaging speed, limiting its usage in dynamic imaging. In this study, we improved the speed through a two-step approach. First, we employed(More)
In this paper, we propose a new dynamic MR image reconstruction technique that combines the compressed sensing-based dynamic methods with parallel imaging techniques to achieve high accelerations. The method decouples the reconstruction process into two sequential steps. In the first step, a series of aliased dynamic images is reconstructed using a CS(More)
Dynamic contrast enhanced MRI requires high spatial resolution for morphological information and high temporal resolution for contrast pharmacokinetics. The current techniques usually have to compromise the spatial information for the required temporal resolution. This paper presents a novel method that effectively integrates sparse sampling, parallel(More)
In this paper, we propose a new reconstruction framework that utilizes nonlinear models to sparsely represent the MR parameter-weighted image in a high dimensional feature space. Different from the prior work with nonlinear models where the image series is reconstructed simultaneously, each image at a specific time point is assumed to lie in a(More)
