Purpose: To develop an efficient algorithm for multicomponent MR fingerprinting (MC-MRF) reconstructions directly from highly undersampled data without making prior assumptions about tissue relaxation times and expected number of tissues. Methods: The proposed method reconstructs MC-MRF maps from highly undersampled data by iteratively...

Purpose: To develop a method for MR Fingerprinting (MRF) sequence optimization that takes both the applied undersampling pattern and a realistic reference map into account. Methods: A predictive model for the undersampling error leveraging on perturbation theory was exploited to optimize the MRF flip angle sequence for improved robustness...

Purpose: To learn a preconditioner that accelerates parallel imaging (PI) and compressed sensing (CS) reconstructions. Methods: A convolutional neural network (CNN) with residual connections was used to train a preconditioning operator. Training and validation data were simulated using 50% brain images and 50% white Gaussian noise images....

Objective: To visualize the encoding capability of magnetic resonance fingerprinting (MRF) dictionaries. Materials and methods: High-dimensional MRF dictionaries were simulated and embedded into a lower-dimensional space using t-distributed stochastic neighbor embedding (t-SNE). The embeddings were visualized via colors as a surrogate for...

Purpose: To design a low-cost, portable permanent magnet-based MRI system capable of obtaining in vivo MR images within a reasonable scan time. Methods: A discretized Halbach permanent magnet array with a clear bore diameter of 27 cm was designed for operation at 50 mT. Custom-built gradient coils, RF coil, gradient amplifiers, and RF...

Quantitative MRI methods that estimate multiple physical parameters simultaneously often require the fitting of a computational complex signal model defined through the Bloch equations. Repeated Bloch simulations can be avoided by matching the measured signal with a precomputed signal dictionary on a discrete parameter grid (i.e. lookup table...
