    Talk Title: Extreme MRI: Reconstructing Hundred-Gigabyte Volumetric Dynamic MRI from Non-Gated Acquisitions

    Series: Medical Imaging Seminar Series

    Abstract: In this talk, I will present techniques to reconstruct 3D dynamic MRI of ~100 GBs from continuous non-gated acquisitions. The problem considered is vastly undetermined and demanding of computation and memory. I will introduce a multi scale low rank matrix model to compactly represent dynamic image sequence. This enables compressed storage, which in combination with a stochastic optimization approach, renders the reconstruction of 100s of GBs of images feasible. The proposed method is applied to dynamic contrast enhanced MRI and free breathing lung MRI, with reconstruction resolution of near millimeter spatially, and sub-second temporally. The attached animated gif shows a 3D rendered result from this talk.
