2014 Poster Sessions : Image Reconstruction in Lower Extremities Perfusion Imaging: Combined Low-Rank Matrix-Completion and Image Segmentation

Student Name : Jieying Luo
Advisor : Dwight Nishimura
Research Areas: Information Systems
Perfusion imaging in the lower extremities remains challenging due to the requirements of large volumetric coverage and high temporal resolution. In this work, a reconstruction method that combines low-rank matrix-completion reconstruction with image-based segmentation and parallel imaging is developed and tested in vivo. The proposed method can achieve highly accelerated dynamic contrast-enhanced perfusion imaging and recover perfusion dynamics with less temporal blurring. This method is promising for quantitative perfusion imaging in the lower extremities.
