Efficient Compressed Sensing MR Image Reconstruction Using Anisotropic Overlapping Group Sparsity Total Variation
Abstract— Compressed sensing magnetic resonance imaging has been proved to be an efficient method to
reconstruct MR images from highly under-sampled k-space data. Total variation (TV) and wavelet transform
are two main sparsity expressions used as prior information in image recovery. In traditional TV, it just
considers the sparse characteristic and ignores the group sparsity feature. In this paper, an extension of TV,
named anisotropic overlapping sparse total variation (AOGSTV) is applied in the CS-MRI reconstruction
process to reduce the staircase artifacts that always exist in TV model. A fast composite splitting algorithm
(FCSA) is used to solve the AOGSTV problem. Radial sampling trajectory is used to under-sample the kspace
data. Experimental results demonstrate that our proposed method can achieve better quality than the
other state-of-the-art methods.
