Multi-GPU Reconstruction of Dynamic Compressed Sensing MRI
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a widely used in-vivo imaging technique that is essential to the diagnosis of disease, but its longer acquisition time hinders its wide adaptation in time-critical applications, such as emergency diagnosis. Recent advances in compressed sensing (CS) research have provided promising theoretical insights to accelerate the MRI acquisition process, but CS reconstruction also poses computational challenges that make MRI less practical. In this paper, we introduce a fast, scalable parallel CS-MRI reconstruction method that runs on graphics processing unit (GPU) cluster systems for dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) MRI. We propose a modified Split-Bregman iteration using a variable splitting method for CS-based DCE-MRI. We also propose a parallel GPU Split-Bregman solver that scales well across multiple GPUs to handle large data size. We demonstrate the validity of the proposed method on several synthetic and real DCE-MRI datasets and compare with existing methods.
